SASW Anti-Racism Plan

SASW’s Anti-Racism Action Plan is part of our overall commitment to improving Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) for our members. It sets out actions which will help us fulfil our commitment to promote anti-racism in social work. We recognise the deeply harmful impact of racism, as highlighted in our report ‘Racism in Scottish Social Work: a 2021 snapshot’. We strive to work towards ending racism, discrimination and oppression and promoting human rights for social workers at every stage of their careers and for people who use social work services. This plan will help us challenge both our own and others’ perceptions, drawing on the accounts of those who have experienced racism.
