On 28 October 2015, Iriss had a launch event to showcase the findings of The View from Here project. The event:
- shared the quantitative and qualitative findings of the project
- provided an overview of the frontline worker perspective
- celebrated the work of the social services workforce
- challenged people to consider what needs to happen in order to maintain a competent, confident and valued workforce
We spoke to a number of people about the findings:
We audio recorded all the presentations from the day.
