NIASW Response to the (Draft) Social Work Strategy: In Pursuit of Excellence
Supporting the Profession in relation to social work services in NI
NIASW welcomes the publication of a Social Work Research Strategy and in principle are supportive to the aim, purpose and vision outlined in the draft Strategy.
NIASW expressed concern that the title implies a research strategy for the whole social work profession, however, the content specifies it is specifically for social workers employed in the HSC sector. NIASW would argue that the Research Strategy should be inclusive of all social workers irrespective of where they are employed.
