SWAN Ireland in a new national SWAN venture established in 2012.

Meeting on the

Housing Crisis

Please share this widely and consider attending. Members of the community and grassroots groups will get together next week to discuss the housing crisis and how local communities can support each other in fighting for the right to a home.


Don't forget that the #M21 March Against

Racism is on in Dublin City Centre this

Saturday, March 21st. Join us behind the

SWAN Ireland banner!


The Social Work Action Network Dublin recently held a successful event in Dublin city centre. The topics of human rights and social justice in social work were discussed. A clear outcome from the discussion was that attendees felt that social work does not currently have a voice in Ireland, in terms of being able to speak out to defend more critical or radical practices in social work, not being able to speak out on behalf of (or with) service users, not being able to speak up for communities, for social work education and not being able to speak out against the increasing technocratic procedures being forced upon social workers, among other issues. It was clear that there is anger about this amongst social workers and their allies (some of whom were at the event), and as a result, SWAN Dublin will be looking to organise another event in the near future on this topic.

In the mean time social workers, get angry, get active!
