Social Work England

Social Work England is an organisation which regulates social workers in England. It sets standards, holds a register, quality assures education and investigates complaints.

From 2 December 2019, Social Work England took over the regulation of social workers in England from the Health and Care Professions Council.

How we will oversee Social Work England

We will review the performance of Social Work England each year. We will give our report to Parliament and publish our report on our website. We will also review every decision made by the regulator's final fitness to practise panels.

Some aspects of the Authority’s oversight of Social Work England will be different to the other regulators we oversee. You can find out more about our oversight arrangements in our statement.

We have now published our first Performance Review for Social Work. You can read the full report or our two-page snapshot.. You can also read our  Review of Social Work England’s process for accepted outcomes in fitness to practise cases.
