Related organisations

There are many government organisations which work in social services and, along with the SWRB which is a Crown entity, either focus on social work or the whānau and communities they are involved with.

These include Oranga Tamariki, the Ministry of Social Development, the Office of the Children’s Commissioner (OCC), the Ombudsman, and the Independent Children’s Monitor (ICM).

Professional bodies

The SWRB works with two professional bodies for social workers – the Aotearoa New Zealand Association of Social Workers (ANZASW), and the Tangata Whenua Social Workers Association (TWSWA). To find out more about what they do, please visit their websites.
