Supervision and Workload Management for Social Work

A Negotiating Resource

Helping People Change Their Lives - the Social Work Manifesto for frontline staff in Scotland issued in 2009 by UNISON and BASW - has been universally welcomed.
It has already resulted in some fruitful discussions at local level within Branches and with employers.

The Manifesto threw the spotlight on the important issues of workload management and supervision. This paper by social work practitioners in UNISON Scotland's Social Work Issues Group is designed as a tool for activists, negotiators and members to promote discussion on these matters.

It brings together some new guidance on Workload Management and updates to UNISON Scotland’s previous paper on Supervision in Social Work.
