“I really like the approach and attempt to involve members. The £70 looks good value especially compared to other bodies I am a member of and seldom hear from! Thank you.”

–  Jameel Hadi, Founding SPPA member, Lecturer at the School of Nursing, University of Salford



   “Social Pedagogy has totally transformed how I think and the constant reflection I do is
enlightening and life changing.  I want to be part of and help if I can to spread the benefits of social pedagogy and connect with like minded people which is why I joined SSPA.”
