Post Lockdown Ethical Guidance for Social Workers

BASW provides overarching ethical guidance: The BASW Code of Ethics for Social Work. BASW also provides ethical guidance on specific ethical situations, which draw on the Code. BASW produced Covid 19 – Ethical Guidance for Social Workers to support social workers in their tasks under the pandemic.

As the UK moves into a post-lockdown situation it was thought helpful to produce guidance on the ethical issues that social workers might face. This is the purpose of the Post Lockdown Ethical Guidance for Social Workers.

If further public health restrictions are imposed BASW will review the guidance it has previously issued.
