Professional practice guidance for home visits during Covid-19 Pandemic

Updated 30 November 2020

This guidance has been developed by the British Association of Social Workers (BASW) in consultation with practitioners, managers and sector leaders to help social workers and their employers manage the risks of home visits during the Covid-19  risk.

Organisations and sector leaders endorsing this guidance are listed below and this will be updated.

Social workers have told us they need consistent guidance whilst undertaking home visits to adults, children and families during this time. This is generic guidance for all social workers across the UK.
