Importance of keeping Social Work political

A quick plug for   this piece I wrote for Community Care about why it’s important for social workers to be political.

Just as an addendum (because I had to keep within a word limit), I’d add that the Social Work Action Network (SWAN) whom I mention in the article have their annual conference in London next year.

I recommend it if you want to see collectively how social workers in the public sector can be political and build links with user organisations. It’s the only way I see our future as a profession.

  1. The blog Invisible England – http://invisibleengland2.wordpress.com/ is an example of political social work. A book on the subject has been published recently- please let me know what you think about this issue.
