"Working in Stockport makes you love social work again. From the moment I started as a Senior Practitioner in Stockport, I fell in love with my job again. This is real social work. If you miss direct work with children, life story work, systemic genograms, family network meetings, reflective practice, relationships, this is the place for you.
