Annual Report by the Chief Social Worker for Adults 2016-17

Being the Bridge

This is my third annual report as Chief Social Worker for Adults. The second half of this report focuses on the development of excellent social work practice, culture change and professional development in delivering social work services, particularly in response to the Care Act and its impact in reframing practice with adults. As before, the report also sets out progress made in the last year to promote and sustain excellent social work; provides an update on delivering recommendations in my second report; and outlines my priorities for 2017-18.
