World Social Work Day (16 March 2021)

World Social Work Day 16 March is the day social workers worldwide stand together to advance our common message globally. This year the theme is Ubuntu: I am Because We Are – strengthening social solidarity and global connectedness.

Today we recognise the essential role our social workers have in connecting people, whānau/family, and communities. Our social workers walk alongside families to help them make positive, lasting changes, and in doing so, we are all helping to build sustainable, fair and just communities.
