We aim to support social workers to make changes in their individual lives, professional practice, organisations and communities.
We are committed to supporting social work practitioners, other human service workers, and their allies, to enable us to collectively work together and take action.
If you or your organisation are interested in:
learning more about climate change;
exploring the relevance of climate change to your practice context;
building climate action into your work, or;
engaging in social action
Then we are here to help. We offer a range of opportunities to enable us to connect; please see the current opportunities below.
Let's Start With A Chat
Our members are happy to catch up with individuals or small groups for an informal chat about climate change and social work. This is a great way to start conversations that may then grow towards more formal actions. Coffee anyone?
Climate Issues Update
Our members can arrange to attend staff meetings or other forums to provide a brief update on the state of the climate emergency and/or to provide specific information on upcoming activities such as the School Strike for Climate. We're happy to be a brief agenda item!
Climate Change: A Briefing For Social Workers
Our one hour presentation aims to provide a concise, evidence-based briefing on the nature and scale of climate change, its impacts and implications, and its importance for social workers. With time for questions and answers this is a great way to bring your organisation 'up-to-speed' on the climate emergency.
Climate Change: Your Field of Practice
Our members are able to develop a presentation on climate change and social work tailored to your specific agency and/or field of practice. The presentation will cover general information on the climate emergency, as well as specific information and resources on the implications for your areas of practice. The length and format can be developed to suit your specific needs, from a brief presentation to a full-day workshop.
