S.W.A.N Ireland attended an IMPACT union conference today which focused on the issue of regulation which is being introduced in Ireland over the next year. Social workers are the first profession out of twelve to be regulated. The body which will regulate social workers is called “CORU”. There are many issues that social workers have with CORU, none of which CORU is actively engaging with social workers in addressing. Because of this, SWAN Ireland believes it is very important to ensure our union pro-actively acts on our behalf in relation to these issues. Read the text of our leaflet below which addresses only a few (!) of our concerns.
