FROM DECEMBER 2009
We are two social work students at London South Bank University. Towards the end of our first year of study, having been troubled by reports of front-line practice, we felt that we needed to debate the future of social work as students. We have a proposition for student social workers across the UK.
FROM JULY 2011
The Social Work Action Network (SWAN) welcomes today's announcement that the News of the World tabloid newspaper, owned by Rupert Murdoch's News International group, is to close.
The newspaper, like its sister paper the Sun, has attacked social workers repeatedly over the years.
FROM MAY 2011
SWAN calls upon all members to support three upcoming events during the Week of Action Against Benefit Cuts - 9th-15th May. This particuarly targets Atos Origin, who are the private sector organisation who have recently won a £300 million contract by the Coalition Government to carry out ‘work capability assessments’ on all of those claiming Incapacity Benefit; their job is to remove welfare from as many people as possible.
We have 52 guests and 7 members online
