A specialist regulator focused on enabling positive change in social work

Every day, social workers support millions of people to improve their chances in life. We are taking a new approach to regulating social workers in their vital roles. 

We believe in the power of collaboration and share a common goal with those we regulate—to protect the public, enable positive change and ultimately improve people’s lives.

CPD consultation now open: share your views

We're proposing some changes to our CPD requirements, to start from December 2021. They aim to improve social workers’ experience of CPD and raise standards in the profession. The changes do not affect this year’s renewal or CPD requirements.

We encourage anyone with an interest in social work, including people with lived experience, to share their views on these changes in our consultation survey.
