BASW guidance for Covid-19

Professional practice guidance during Covid-19

All our professional guidance for Covid-19 can be found on our dedicated Social work resources during coronavirus page.  The guidance has been downloaded thousands of times and is being used not only across the UK but also in Europe and the wider world. Please use and share the guidance widely.

We are grateful to the Honorary Officers, members of Council, all the contributions from members and non-member who have responded to our UK Cobid-19 Survey, staff and Policy, Ethics, Human Rights (PEHR) membership sub group ,who input to the guidance, so that it could be developed rapidly in response to gaps that social workers identified.

We will be reviewing and updating the guidance over coming weeks to ensure it stays relevant.  We will also be working with national groups to develop country specific guidance as needed and with the Social Workers Union on common themes.

These documents are live in response to the pandemic and we want to hear from members to help us shape them too - please do get in touch to feedback any comments you have or requests for new guidance.
