Social Work and Human Rights: A Practice Guide

Human rights are at the centre of every-day social work practice.

Social Work and Human Rights guides launched on Human Rights Day - 10th December 2019.

Social work is a human rights-based profession. A key milestone for the development of human rights in the UK was the Human Rights Act 1998.

Every day social workers across the UK tackle issues that are underpinned by human rights.
