IFSW Updated the World Social Work Day Poster to reflect the practice realities under Covid 19 conditions. This news from the social work profession has reached the attention of the international media as the profession quickly and responsibly adapts to the new situation.
IFSW Secretary-General, Rory Truell commented, ‘Social workers are able to work with high levels of complexity and with changing conditions. In this crisis the profession is critical in advocating that social services adapt to the conditions and remain open, offering appropriate online and telephone support systems where physical contact is not possible. This especially important for populations that are at high risk. The World Social Work Day Poster was updated as the profession adjusts at all levels and we are delighted there has been significant interest from the world media”.
