Deep flaw in report-back on social worker registration
Social Service Providers Aotearoa says the select committee’s report on mandatory social worker registration fails to meet the Bill’s fundamental objectives of safeguarding the public and protecting the integrity of the social work profession.
SSPA supports mandatory registration of social workers to promote public accountability and safety and to reinforce the value of professional social work. But the Bill requires significant changes if it is to achieve these objectives.
