Social Work Together
Thousands of former social workers are now able to support the national effort in tackling the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Social Work England, the specialist regulator for 100,000 social workers in England, has reinstated the professional registration of 8,000 former social workers so they can fill vital roles in local communities in this critical situation. The Social Work Together programme is an initiative developed by Social Work England, the Department for Education, the Department for Health and Social Care, and the Local Government Association. Social workers can use the website to register their interest in working on the frontline through the Covid-19 outbreak and for local authorities to find extra staff.
