The SWRB has established a Working Group made up of social work sector leaders to develop a Scope of Practice for social work which is unique to Aotearoa New Zealand. The roopū met yesterday 29th June to review and consider the contributions of social workers from our recent Scope of Practice engagement hui and to begin this mahi on behalf of the social work profession. A draft Scope of Practice will be shared for sector feedback later this year.
