Service User Involvement in UK Social Service Agencies and Social Work Education

Forming partnerships with service users became a requirement for social
work education programs in the United Kingdom as of 2003, leading to the
development of innovative approaches to social work education that
involve service users as experts who are helping to teach the future generation
of social workers. This article examines the perceptions of service
user involvement and how it is implemented in the United Kingdom in the
social service sector and the university setting, and concludes with implications
for the United States.
