Trafodaeth feirniadol o gyfraniad defnyddwyr gwasanaeth at addysg gwaith cymdeithasol yng Nghymru
(A critical discussion on the contribution of service users to social work education in Wales)

Sally Baker, Hefin Gwilym and Brian J. Brown

This article reports on the findings of initial work undertaken to assess the contribution of service users / carers to social work education at a higher education institution in Wales and also critically discusses the contribution of service users / carers to social work education. The role of service users / carers in this context continues to be unclear. We suggest that this is reflected in the comments of service users / carers, who often talk about the value of their contribution to social work education in terms of personal benefits - often therapeutic – which they experience from taking part. Social work students are enthusiastic about the contribution of service users / carers to their education, and believe it is useful, but they have varying ideas on how and what the contribution of service users / carers could and should be.
