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.
Social workers must be on Social Work England’s register to practise legally. They must renew annually, so the public can be sure they continue to meet the professional standards and practise safely.
Applications for social workers to renew their registration have now closed.
