Update on Social Work England
The Department of Health and Social Care has released a response to a public consultation on the regulatory framework for Social Work England.
Social Work England is due to take over from the Health and Care Professional Council as the main social care regulator from next year.
The response presents the outcomes from the general assessment of impacts, including equalities impacts, which has been undertaken following a public consultation. The assessment should be read alongside the Government response to the consultation on Social Work England’s secondary legislation and the secondary legislation, Social Workers Regulations 2018.
