World Social Work Day

We want your help to celebrate and recognise the contribution of Australian social workers on World Social Work Day - Tuesday, 20 March 2018. Join our Thunderclap and help us spread the word about the work of social workers.

Social workers provide key supports to address the inequities of the world’s most vulnerable individuals, families and communities. They work in a wide range of areas, including mental health, family violence, child abuse, aged care, disability, housing, drug and alcohol, and in doing so, advocate for policy that will enable a fairer society. Social workers in Australia and the world over, make a positive difference.

This year’s theme is Promoting Community and Environmental Sustainability. Dr Rory Truell, Secretary-General of the International Federation of Social Workers, which sets the annual theme for World Social Work Day, recently interviewed AASW National President Christine Craik about using her social work skills during devastating bushfires in rural Victoria, Australia.

Think of Thunderclap as a social media megaphone. To get involved, it just takes a couple of seconds and a few clicks.

By signing up on Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr (any or all of those), you’re allowing Thunderclap to share a single message on your behalf – which will be on World Social Work Day, 20 March 2018 at 12pm – AEDST.

Thank you for your support and let's celebrate and recognise World Social Work Day!
