Social Work During Covid-19: Learning for the Future

Challenges, Best Practice and Professional Transformation

This report presents the ethical and practical experiences social workers reported, the best practice that emerged in the period March to August 2020, and points to the different pathways for social work transformation in the UK in the face of the social and political changes accelerated by COVID-19. While we focus on social work professional learning and problem solving in this report, we also acknowledge that social work practice can be strongly influenced by prominent but shifting political ideologies, government policies and public discourses around key social issues.
