The Social Work Role in Domestic Abuse
This participative event, delivered in partnership with Scottish Women’s Aid, is part of a week of SASW activity related to the theme of this year’s World Social Work Day “Promoting Community and Environmental Sustainability”. This theme is grounded within social work; its values and ethics and the application of best practice in Scotland today. Social work is about social justice, promoting welfare, and supporting people and communities to make lasting changes which allow all our citizens to have equal opportunities and better life experiences.
