Glasgow hosts debate on future of social work

The future of social work and whether it is a profession worth fighting for is being debated in Glasgow today and tomorrow.

The two-day conference at Glasgow Caledonian University will also consider the increasing fragmentation and privatisation of social work.

Speakers will discuss how social work can resist these two forces while developing practice based on social justice.

Social work lecturer Barrie Levine, of Glasgow Caledonian University, said: “This provides a marvellous opportunity for those involved in the profession to come together and debate not just the crisis of social work, but how social work can resist increasing fragmentation and privatisation while developing networks that can build an engaged form of practice based on principles of social justice.”
