Analysis. This part of the website focuses on developing a more detailed analysis and critique of contemporary UK social work policy. This is divided into two sections.

The Social Work and Social Care section covers broader policy developments such as the Dilnot Review of social care funding and the privatisation of social work via social work practices.

The Social Work Reform Board section includes articles on the Task Force, Reform Board and Munro Review - set up in the wake of the death of baby Peter Connelly.

Contributions from practitioners, service users, carers and students are equally valued. We encourage you to contribute yourself: please submit any articles by email to the SWAN Dispatches Newsletter.
