Help the Social Work Action Network Ireland Campaign!!

Dear SWAN Supporter,

At the recent International SWAN conference in Durham, a motion (see attached photo’s) was passed to support the Social Work Action Network here in Ireland in our fight against the introduction of the cheap labour graduate scheme for newly qualified social workers.
As SWAN supporters you can help our campaign by emailing the person trying to introduce this scheme, the Director of the Child and Family Agency Gordon Jeyes, on May 1st, International Workers Day, telling him about this motion and voicing your opposition to this scheme. His email address is:

Thank you!

We want to develop a network of service users, practicitioners, academics and students to support radical and progressive social work. We need a social work that is ready to challenge oppressive practice, that means working collectively across the country and internationally to advance Social Work.
