SWRB: Scope of Practice

September 11, 2020 at 2:20 PM

From the Social Workers Registration Board

The draft Scope of Practice is a high-level description of social work practice. It supports a shared identity for social workers and establishes a common understanding of social work in Aotearoa, New Zealand.

The Scope of Practice Working Group and the SWRB are pleased to share the draft Scope of Practice and we welcome your feedback on whether you think the draft Scope describes social work in Aotearoa.

Your written feedback on the draft Scope will be welcomed up until Monday the 5th October. Please send it to us at

We will be running two zoom webinars to answer any questions you may have – these will be on the 16th and 23rd of September from 12-1pm at the following link:
