MPs back Early Day Motion recognising social work's contribution to society

MPs across a host of parties in the House of Commons recognised the contribution to society made by social workers with a special Early Day Motion to coincide with World Social Work Day on 18 March.

The wording of the EDM is:
This house notes World Social Work Day on 18 March; recognises social work as a global profession and commends social workers across the UK for their dedication and hard work with some of the most vulnerable people in society.

Sponsored by Emma Lewell-Buck, Labour MP for South Shields, the EDM has now won the support of over 20 MPs.
