Changes to Social Work England’s regulatory framework

Consultation outcome

From 23 March to 11 May 2022, we ran a consultation asking for views on proposed technical changes to the regulatory framework for Social Work England.

This report is a summary of responses received as well as the government’s response to the consultation.

The Social Workers Regulations 2018 set out the detail of the regulatory framework for Social Work England, covering:

registration of social workers

powers of intervention
