Practice Governance Framework: Responsibility and Accountability in Social Work Practice

Achieving good outcomes for people and communities depends on having a confident, competent and valued social services workforce with effective frontline practitioners delivering safe and personalised support and services. To do this, employers and practitioners need to work together to develop a supportive and creative environment where people have a shared vision, clarity on accountabilities and responsibilities, good leadership and supervision, manage risk and work effectively with each other, other agencies and the people who need support and help.

This Practice Governance Framework, in conjunction with the guidance on The Role of the Chief Social Work Officer and The Role of the Registered Social Worker in Statutory Interventions, provides a suite of materials to help employers and practitioners achieve this.
