Information for participants

Who is Social Work Week 2021 for?

Social Work Week is for anyone with an interest in social work in England, including:

  • social workers (including people looking to return to the profession)
  • people with lived experience of social work
  • students training to be social workers
  • employers of social workers
  • education providers

We are also keen to see stakeholder organisations who share our ambition to build an accurate and rich picture of social work practice in England today.

We will ensure that we deliver a varied programme with events taking place at different times of the day (including wellbeing activities), so people are able to take part when it suits them best.

Why you should take part

You should take part if you want to:

  • learn, connect, and engage with others on the values and principles which form the backbone of effective social work practice
  • debate the growing value that social work as a regulated profession adds to society in these unprecedented times
  • reflect, celebrate, and consider your own personal role to enable change in pursuit of social justice
  • reflect on the impact of significant events in 2020 on the social work profession and people
  • deepen your understanding of the different ways social workers carry out their work
  • explore how regulation supports a shared ambition to improve outcomes for people with lived experience

We will publish more information about Social Work Week 2021 later this year.


Tickets for all Social Work Week events are now live. Please note that some events may sell out and go back on sale due to demand.
