Social workers asked to share their views on equality, diversity, inclusion and the impact of racism

Wednesday, June 30th, 2021 | News
Social workers across England are being urged to complete two surveys to help the social work sector get a better understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion and the impact of racism. Specialist regulator Social Work England is asking social workers to help them build a more accurate picture of the workforce by completing new questions on their online accounts. This is a voluntary request for information to help the regulator collect data that will help them to continue to provide services lawfully and respectfully. At the same time, a collaboration of social work organisations is urging social workers to complete a major anti-racism survey about their views and experiences. The Anti-Racist Social Work Steering group is led by representatives from the principal social workers networks for both adults and children and families, What Works for Children’s Social Care, and Social Work England. Its anti-racism survey aims to understand the prevalence, impact and general awareness of racism in social work. You can find out more in this video. Social workers of all ethnicities, working in different positions and sectors, are being encouraged to complete it so that it can inform an action plan on next steps for the profession.
