Social Workers Professional Standards – England
Social Workers Professional Standards -England
Our professional standards are specialist to the social work profession and apply to registered social workers in all roles and settings. The standards are the threshold standards necessary for safe and effective practice. After engaging with thousands of professionals, our standards reflect the value and diversity of social work practice and the positive impact it has on people’s lives, families and communities.

The standards set out what a social worker in England must know, understand and be able to do including:
- Promote the rights, strengths and wellbeing of people, families and communities
- Establish and maintain the trust and confidence of people
- Be accountable for the quality of my practice and the decisions I make
- Maintain my continuing professional development
- Act safely, respectfully and with professional integrity
- Promote ethical practice and report concerns
Full information on each subject is broken down and can be accessed here.
Guidance on the professional standards
The standards are underpinned by guidance intended to support social workers to understand the standards and to uphold them in their practice so that social workers can continue to meet the professional standards and maintain their registration.
