The Children and Social Work Act 2017 provides a broad legal framework for the regulation of social work in England through the creation of a new regulatory body, Social Work England.

The Department for Education and the Department of Health and Social Care have jointly launched the consultation Social Work England: consultation on secondary legislative framework proposing arrangements for Social Work England’s operating framework. It is accompanied by draft illustrative regulations.

  • the policy background to the reform of social work regulation;
  • approach and aims in setting up Social Work England;
  • approach to establishing the secondary legislative framework for Social Work England;
  • and the key propositions being consulted on.
