The Journal of Social Care provides a forum for managers, practitioners and students (undergraduate and postgraduate) of social care to share, through publication, their original research, practice reflections, literature and book reviews.
This journal, for the first time, provides a space within the Irish context for stakeholders within the social care field, both experienced and inexperienced to publish material of relevance to their profession.
A primary aim of this journal is to promote the development of research active practitioners in order to provide a solid foundation to underpin the future development of social care practice.
