Social Work England is a non-departmental public body, taking a unique approach to regulating social workers in their vital roles. Our framework document has been agreed between the Department for Education, as sponsor department, in consultation with Department of Health and Social Care and us. The Department for Education has responsibility for child and family social workers, and the Department of Health and Social Care has responsibility for adult social workers.

Our Annual Report and Accounts for the period of 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022 set out the successes and challenges in our second year of being the regulator for social workers in England. Over the year we’ve built on the solid foundations, systems and processes established in our first year. We’ve continued to talk to and listen to the sector. Together with our sector feedback, we have applied our business intelligence, learning and development to continually improve on our performance.

Despite these challenges of the pandemic continuing, social workers continued to work hard and adapt their practice throughout times of uncertainty to offer vital support to people, families, and communities. We thank social workers for their hard work. They have showcased their continuing professional development, embedding reflection into their practice. This shows a commitment to maintain professional standards and ensure safe, effective practice for the public.
