World Social Work Day

A reminder that 21 March is World Social Work Day – a day to celebrate our social workers, whether it’s with a morning tea or a get-together to talk about lives turned around, thanks to a social worker.

As Nicola Atwool of Otago University told last year’s conference, social work is not for the faint-hearted. It’s a tough job, but it’s hard to think of any job more important than keeping a child safe or a family together. The theme for World Social Work Day 2017 is Promoting Community and Environmental Sustainability. SSPA Quick Update 8 March 2017.
