Curating our past, creating our future

Whether you are a social worker, a person who has experienced social work services, a family member, policymaker, educator, employer or someone who cares about social work and its future, please consider getting involved in the project. 

Your ideas and experiences will help us to build a rich narrative of insight and understanding of social work past, present and future.
