World Social Work Day 2016

Every year in March, World Social Work Day is held to raise awareness of the work that social workers do and the problems in society that they are trying to remedy. 

In 2016, World Social Work Day will be recognized on 15 March. The theme this year is 'Promoting the dignity and worth of peoples', which has been derived from the Global Agenda for Social Work and Social Development, led by the three international social work organizations of social work practitioners and educators.

To mark this important day, we have made a selection of articles in keeping with this year's theme free to read, with the aim of disseminating knowledge to social workers around the world to help them meet the Global Agenda and continue to aid society.
