As a social worker, you face difficult challenges every day. You work hard to improve the lives of your clients and help them confront and resolve their personal dilemmas and cope with loss and change. In the present climate where some factions of the media seemed hellbent on destroying social workers and social work and seemed to find cases that are few and far between. There’s never anything on the lack of resources which social workers need to carry out their role or the meagre funding from government. We need to believe in what we do and in what we have achieved and to stand and champion for those who are vulnerable and at greatest risk. You are a skilled professional who helps people help themselves by providing useful information and a wide range of resources available for those in need.
This requires access to cutting-edge ideas, current information, and high-quality resources to be familiar with all of the available resources for your clients. Your membership entitles you to access to the forum. For anyone who is not a member there a wide variety of benefits, learning materials and practice and development resources. There are also a range of business services that save you time and money to publications and programmes that can help advance your career.
Social workers together is a private social work website that allows you to keep in touch with your fellow students, former students work colleagues and retired colleagues its free and simple to use. However, you may need to go through some security checks for that to happen.
We endeavour to encourage people to work within the confines of the code of practice as laid down by the Health & Care Professions Council,
the Care Council for Wales, the Northern Ireland Social Care Council and the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC). However, we are not a policing or compliance body for any of the four social work bodies. We hope that this website will be a good and practical resource tool to help us together to face the changing and developing world of social work. Finally a site which caters for all UK social workers.
