Understanding the demand for social work services

We are seeking your help to gather information on the demand for social workers and the number of outstanding social worker vacancies that organisations are having to manage. We know people are having difficulty recruiting, whether its being able to find social workers, or the constraints of resources. But what would the wish list look like?  

Please take five minutes to complete this short survey, your responses will be really valuable. To participate, click here

We want to add this information to what we are learning about what’s happening in the sector from our Annual Workforce Survey. Thank you to everyone that responded – the response rate was a huge 57% response rate which we are now busy writing up. We will be including the results in an upcoming newsletter. 

In the new lead role that Minister Sepuloni has assigned to the Board, for social worker workforce planning, this information will help us to build the picture of both the opportunities and barriers the social work profession is facing and help us to influence change across the sector – as well as provide information for others advocating for social workers. 

The survey will close at 10pm, Sunday 21 November.
