Engaging with the media

A key part of our work is to engage with the media to allow us to get the right messages over to the public about what social work is and what social workers and carers do.

Journalists will find the media briefings useful for general background information about social work, its key services and topical issues. In addition key Social Work Scotland press releases and articles that Social Work Scotland have been quoted in or written for the media can be searched here.
