BASW Cymru responds to the recognition payment for social workers in Wales

We are really pleased that Welsh Government has responded positively to our call that social workers should be paid a recognition payment for their service during the last year.

Social workers have told us that they’ve felt invisible and not valued, so this payment will go some way towards acknowledging the essential work, they continued to undertake to safeguard children, adults and older people.
