A leadership organisation for the social work profession
Social Work Scotland is the professional leadership body for the social work and social care professions. We are a membership organisation which represents social workers and other professionals who lead and support social work across all sectors. We have members from NHS, Local Authorities, third and independent sectors.
Effectively, we do two things:
- we influence and advice on the development of policy and legislation;
- and we support the development of the social work and social care professions.
You can find our project work on SDS, care and support at home, CSWO leadership and other topics on the side bar menu on the home page.
You can find the huge range of committees, sub-groups and practice networks we operate below.
If you want to get involved, find out more or seek advice from a group, please go to the 'contacts' section.
Our engagement with our members is organised around 23 different groups, networks and committees.
