Better than before: sustainable social service practice post-covid

Join SSPA for a facilitated discussion led by Dr Emily Keddell on sustainable social service practice adaptations in the post-covid era.

Before the event think about these questions and join with other social service practitioners:

  • What practice or policy changes have you made that you will definitely keep doing after the pandemic passes?
  • What practice or policy changes have you made that you might keep doing after the pandemic passes? What are the pros and cons of these changes?
  • In your type of service, what has been the greatest challenge and the greatest solution?

This discussion will be held via zoom with time for breakout sessions. When registering, please choose one of these groups and you will be put into your chosen breakout room during the session for more detailed discussion.

  • Child and family support
  • Family violence/sexual violence
  • Mental health and addiction
