A Social Work ‘Academic-in-Residence’?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper outlines ideas in action relating to establishing closer connections and
collaboration between a University Social Work team and a third sector children and families social work agency. It suggests that there is much scope for such cooperation and advances the notion, common elsewhere but not so in social work education and practice, of establishing within the agency an ‘academic-in-residence’. It is argued that this is a further development of
knowledge exchange and capable of producing much benefit for agencies, faculty, practitioners and students.
