Online Survey: Practice and experience of international social care workers in the UK

Are you a citizen of a country other than the UK?

AND

Are you working in a care home, for a home care agency, or as a support worker, social worker, care manager or occupational therapist?

If your answer is yes to both of these questions, we would very much like to hear about your experiences of working in the UK, whether you were recruited when you were living in another country or after you had arrived in the UK.

Your views are very valuable to our research and we would appreciate if you can take part by completing an online survey. This is easy to do and there is a prize draw with 6 prizes ! The survey does not ask you to provide any personal information, it is anonymous and your views will be only used for research purposes.

If you would like to contribute your views, please e-mail me, Shereen Hussein, [shereen.hussein@kcl.ac.uk] and I will send you a unique link to the online survey. No personal details (such as name, place of work or address) will be collected and your views will be only used in aggregate, in combination with other people’s, for research purposes. Please email me, Shereen, if you have any questions.

The survey is being carried out by an independent research unit based at our university: The Social Care Workforce Research Unit, King’s College London. The study has gained ethical approval [Ref: (GGS)/08/09-21] from our university:

Winners will be drawn by random after the closing date of the survey (end of April 2009) and winners will be notified by e-mail and asked to provide a postal address to receive their prize.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU!
