This past week has been Social Work Watch, a project between Community Care and Unison to understand a day in the life of social workers.
There is still time to complete the survey about how you spent Wednesday 21 September, but for now here is a round up of how social workers who shared their work on social media filled their time.

#SocialWorkWatch pulled over as I can't find the venue for my meeting. No sense of direction is an unhelpful attribute for a social worker!
