"Supporting the Social Work Community"
Our ethos has always been to support the social work community. One Stop Social is a social worker-owned service, so we have social worker values and experiences to our core. We understand the sector and the people who make it great. With that in mind, we’ve been quietly working on a new service that we hope will show our gratitude to social workers across the UK: One Stop Social Membership.
We recognise that while the jobs social workers do are incredibly important, you are more than your practice. Therefore, we’ve put together a whole range of benefits and discounts to reward you as both a practitioner and as a person. As a One Stop Social Member you can enjoy up to 25% off social work books, access to e-journals, discounted social work insurance AND our rewards platform where you can find discounts for holidays, restaurants, retail, utilities and more!
One Stop Social Membership is available for just £6.49 a month and you can register today! All you need to do is fill in our registration form (found here) and we’ll authorise your account! It’s pretty simple really, so what’s holding you back? To help convince you, check out more details on One Stop Social Membership below:
Books are a key part of a social workers career, whether throughout your education or during working life, our profession lends itself naturally to research and learning from others. So, we knew that any service that hoped to support the social work community had to allow easier access to books. We’re incredibly pleased to offer up to 25% off books and e-books from publishers Critical Publishing and Kirwin Maclean Associates; with author Neil Thompson offering Members 10% off all his books through various publishers.
As a part of the continuous learning process that defines social work, more and more our sector is turning to e-journals as a source of information. To aid with this personal development of the members of our community, we’ve secured access to a wide range of journals from SocINDEX with full text that you can access to learn about cases, theories and more.
Insurance is important. It’s an essential part of working as a social worker, but we believe it shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg just to protect your practise. Therefore, we’ve teamed up with Caunce O’Hara to get Members 90% off bespoke social work insurance packages, tailored specifically to you and your job. This is set to save you hundreds of pounds a year and thankfully Caunce O’Hara de-jargon insurance, which makes the whole process a lot easier.
Our rewards platform is just an extra way for us to say thank you to social workers for their hard work. We wanted to make sure that we were looking after social workers as a whole, and part of that bigger picture includes your personal lives. Social workers are human beings, who go to restaurants, shopping and on holiday; and One Stop Social Membership pays attention to that. The rewards platform offers discounts for holidays, travel, retail, utilities and more which on average could save you £1000 a year. Some of the current favourites in the office are the concierge service and the cashback offers – though we’re also all in love with up to 50% off holiday packages with Booking.com!
These are the four main pillars of One Stop Social Membership, but becoming a Member offers you a whole range of additional benefits, including a free copy of our upcoming print magazine (“The OSS”), inclusion in a monthly lottery draw for cash prizes and access to a benevolent fund. All the details can be found at our brand-new website ( www.ossmembership.co.uk ) but feel free to get in touch and ask our team if you have any questions about One Stop Social Membership. We’re here to support you!
