‘Policitally controlled social work regulator threatens to breach Human Rights Act’ – @nagalro reacts with ‘deep concerns’

Nagalro has reacted with ‘deep concern’ to government proposals for the future regulation of the social work profession. Draft regulations, published this month for consultation, would see social workers at risk of being suspended from practice by unaccountable administrators, before any formal malpractice charges have been laid against them and without the opportunity to put their case to an independent tribunal.

  1. Personally, I do not have any issue with the proposals, as I think that any social worker who has acted with full transparency and integrity has nothing to fear.
