British Association of Social Workers (BASW) -
BASW has published the Inquiry into the State of Social Work report on behalf of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Social Work, outlining the pressures facing the profession. The report contains a series of recommendations to help address these challenges. The MP's inquiry followed on from BASW's 2012 State of Social Work survey. It heard testimonies from experts and evidence from frontline social workers about unmanageable caseloads, rising numbers of children entering care and IT systems that prevent social workers from spending time with vulnerable people.
