Social work and home visits
In this short film, co-researchers from The Power of Small Gestures project share their stories of having social workers in their homes. They explore the importance of social workers making small gestures such as accepting a cup of tea, offering to remove shoes or remarking on a family pet in enhancing home visits for both parties.
The Power of Small Gestures research project is a collaboration between the University of Sheffield and Sheffield City Council exploring the role of relationships in social worker practice.
This film will premiere at 12.30pm on Wednesday 3 November 2021 and will remain available throughout the festival.
Dr Rachael Black and Dr Michaela Rogers, Department of Sociological Studies
