Sector leaders issue survey to shine light on racism in social work and commit to ‘meaningful change’

Community Care has reported that sector leaders have pledged “meaningful change” on racism in social work after launching a survey to uncover the extent of the problem.

The survey asks social workers to report on the extent of racism they have witnessed or experienced at work, how far they think it is a problem in social work and their own organisation and what they think should be done about it.

It has been produced by the Anti-Racist Social Work Steering Group, set up in the wake of George Floyd’s murder and led by representatives from the principal social workers networks for children and adults, What Works for Children’s Social Care and Social Work England.
