Changes to the Social Workers Regulations 2018 (in relation to the end of the EU transition period) come into force on 1 January 2021. The Social Workers Regulations will be updated on Legislation.gov.uk. This is an external website and we are not able to confirm when these changes will be reflected. We will publish a copy of the updated regulations in the new year.
