 Social Work in Covid-19 
 Getting the most out of video-calling 
 applications: Sharing best practice 

COVID-19 is placing increased pressures on vulnerable children and adults, while also significantly impacting the way social workers are able to interact with them. Face to face contact is much reduced, leading local authorities across the country to adopt video-calling applications to communicate with people.  As part of our work in supporting the sector at this time, we’ve spoken to a number of adult social care services who have recently made this transition, to understand how they are getting on and to identify good practice.

 LGA: Social Care Standards and   Interoperability - executive summary 

In many areas of society our lives are made more convenient by the use of digital devices. We can now book holidays online, access our banking information and order groceries on a range of devices all connected to the internet. However, whilst there has been progress in sharing information across health and social care there is still much more that can be made. Where are we now and how do we move forward?
