World Social Work Day – 16th March 2021

16th March 2021

Every year World Social Work day has a theme and the theme for this year is:

Ubuntu: I am because we are.  (Zulu pronunciation: [ùɓúntʼù]) 

Ubuntu: ‘I am because we are’ is a concept and philosophy that aligns with the ethics of social work itself.  It reinforces the importance of global solidarity and co-operation as a profession and as societies, particularly as we move through unprecedented and challenging times across the UK and across the world.

BASW (British Association of Social Workers) has created a programme of events, including seminars, podcasts and workshops to celebrate the solidarity of Social Work, these can be found here: World Social Work Month 2021 Events |
