Bite-size guides for social service workers
Our suite of bite-size guides were developed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Designed to support the workforce with quick easy access and device -friendly learning resources on key themes, the guides were previously known as COVID-19 guides. We know these resources are still being used so are continuing to make them available whilst we review their content.
