Thank you to everyone that contributed to the report.  Unfortunately, we've not been able to capture the full details of every submission.  This is only a snapshot of activities from across the UK due to the limitations of time and resources.  Apologies for any activities missed or any geographical mishaps in advance!  Please email wayne.reid@basw.co.uk if you have any updates before 08/06/21 at 5pm.   

Mapping the ‘Anti-racism in Social Work’ activities from the last 12 months will prove valuable now and in the coming years in terms of accountability, planning future workstreams, promoting collaboration and showcasing the very essence of Social Work values and ethics (which can replicated).
