Choice, independence and safeguarding: a balancing act

Professor Rachel Fyson’s inaugural lecture will trace her career from school holidays volunteering on play schemes for children with learning disabilities and dropping out of university to become a care worker, through to re-entering academia and becoming Professor of Social Work.

She will reflect on how her previous career in social care continues to shape her academic interests, particularly her focus on the tensions and contradictions within social care policies which continually struggle to achieve a balance between safeguarding against risk of abuse and the promotion of choice and independence.

This event will take place 5-6.30pm on Wednesday 23 October in B63 Law and Social Sciences Building, University Park.

There will be tea and coffee available from 4.30pm and a drinks reception following the Lecture at 6.30pm.
