Social Work England

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.

Black Lives Matter: equality, diversity and inclusion at Social Work England

The current COVID-19 crisis, and the horror of the death of George Floyd in America and subsequent Black Lives Matter movement, have thrown into stark relief that there has never been a greater need for social work and social workers in society. Our profession, with its values and principles of anti-racist and anti-oppressive practice, is uniquely placed to lead the way in ensuring equality in all aspects of society. As the specialist regulator for social workers, we understand that we too have a key role to play in leading the charge on this, and leading by example. We commit once again to standing against racism and discrimination in all its forms.

Find out more about our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.
