This is a report of a partnership project headed by the University of Sussex School of Social Work and Social Care. The project formed part of Stage 2 of a national (England) project commissioned from SCIE by the Department of Health (DH) in 2005, to develop a strategy to support the participation of service users and carers in social work education. The project aims were to identify and report on the ways in which carers were involved in social work education, to identify the challenges encountered, to identify and promote the exchange of good practice, to explore how participation could be widened to include seldom-heard carer groups, to create a national forum for carers involved in social work education, and to consult on the need for a web-based networking facility.
