Guidance on safe and effective practice
Guidance on self-referrals
This guidance is to:
- help registered social workers decide whether to make a self-referral due to a change in circumstances, and
- provide information about how to do this
A self-referral is when a social worker tells us about something that may affect their ability to practise safely and effectively. All registered social workers in England must notify us as soon as possible of any changes that may affect their ability to do so.
