We are a social work and care collective run by social workers and care professionals, and we want you to join us. We’ve put together a whole range of benefits and discounts to reward you as both a practitioner and as a person.
What We Offer
We believe in giving something back to the social work community. To this end we are working with a number of like-minded organisations to provide you with the tools to develop good practice across the UK. Most importantly, we believe that everyone’s voice matters. We want to build our social work collective on your ideas, and champion the causes that matter to you.
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!
Benefits for One Stop Social members include
Rewards & Benefits
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!
Books & Resources
We want to encourage a continuous learning process as we know understanding different theories, methods and ideas improves your practice. Therefore, we offer OSS Members between 10% and 30% off valuable books and resources to foster good practice.
NEW: The Rewards & Discounts APP
Our partner has recently launched a rewards and discounts App that all OSS Members can download. Simply join and download from your apple or android account. Download for free for OSS Members.
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.
Social Work Insurance
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.
