The Social Work Community Podcast is a new offering from Community Care.
This episode is about racism within social work. We speak to Nana and Ash, both children and family social workers, about their experiences of racism. There is discussion about racism from families they have worked with but also from within the organisations they have worked for.
- What should a team manager do if a family asks for a different social worker based on their race or religion?
- How much support is available for social workers who receive abuse from service users?
- How important is allyship? Is there a need for more cultural competency within social work?
- And how much has changed since the death of George Floyd?
They discuss this and much more in this unmissable episode.
