World Social Work Day 2018


World Social Work Day is held on 20th March and is an opportunity to celebrate the social work profession.


World Social Work Day is celebrated around the world on 20th March 2018. From Parliament to the United Nations, social workers worldwide stand together to celebrate their profession and raise awareness of the contributions social workers make in their communities.

We want to say a big THANK YOU to all of our social workers and support workers, in Adult Social Care and Children’s Social Care who make a difference every day in their local communities.
