World Social Work Day 2018
World Social Work Day is celebrated each year on the third Tuesday of each March. This year, it falls on Tuesday, 20 March 2018. World Social Work Day is when we celebrate and recognise social workers as champions for social justice, self-determination and human rights.
Social workers are skilled, knowledgeable and specialise in issues related to social and emotional wellbeing. Working holistically with individuals, families and communities, social workers are passionate advocates for a fairer Australia. Join us in recognising and celebrating them this World Social Work Day, either at your local AASW Branch, your workplace and by joining our social media Thunderclap campaign.
As well as joining our Thunderclap, you can also take a selfie and post to Twitter using the hashtag #SocialWorkDayAU
– tag us in tweets @AASW_
We would like you to:
- Share your stories about great social workers
- Tell us what inspires you as a social worker. Do you have an inspiring social work story that you could share? Tell us in 50 words a great story of social work in action, with your photo to email@example.com by 28 February 2018.
