Building a safe and confident future: maintaining momentum

Progress report that marks two years of work by the Social Work Reform Board implementing the recommendations of the Social Work Task Force as laid out in its report "Building a Safe, Confident Future".

It reiterates the necessity of reform, celebrates the progress that has been made and outlines what still needs to be done. It also charts the changing context for the work since the Task Force reported. This includes how the reform programme sits with, and relates to, a number of important developments in the field e.g. the Munro Review, the Family Justice Review, the Action Plan for Adoption, “Vision for Adult Social Care”, expected changes in legislation following the Law Commission’s consultation on law reform for adult social care in England and Wales, and the planned Care and Support White Paper.
