What we do

Effective Practice makes it easier for you to work effectively by identifying solutions to practice issues and implementing these on the ground.

Effective Practice works mainly within adult social care with practitioners, such as social workers, and those who support them.

Effective Practice was set up by Gerry Nosowska. Gerry is a registered social worker with extensive experience of adult social care practice, management, and using evidence to improve practice and services. Gerry is an Associate with Research in Practice for Adults and with Child Centred Practice.

The values Effective Practice works with are to:

  • Use the best available information
  • Be thoughtful
  • Start from the customer’s point of view
  • Communicate clearly
  • Focus on what will practically make progress.
