This report explores the extent and nature of participation by caregivers in the education of social work students in England. A national survey gave rise to a series of telephone interviews with education providers; regional workshops then brought together for discussion representives of carers' organisations, individual caregivers and educators. The study identified the ways in which caregivers are involved in educating social work students, the challenges experienced, the factors that facilitate positive involvement, and the outcomes experienced by those involved. The report makes a series of recommendations designed to facilitate good practice in caregiver participation in social work education.
