Publications | Our latest research insights & learning reports

The Department of Health is supporting the development of a Named Social Worker approach in six local authorities. The ultimate goal is simple: that people with learning disabilities live a good life.

The Named Social Worker programme aims to support sites to make changes to social work practice and wider system conditions that will improve outcomes and experiences for individuals with learning disabilities, and for the people around them.
