What is Social Work?

Social Workers aim to enhance individual and community wellbeing by addressing structural challenges that are harmful to people, such as discrimination, inequality, violence and other forms of oppression—focusing on social justice and human rights.

Social Work can assist in generating sustainable change by engaging in interpersonal practice, groupwork, advocacy, community work and social action to address both personal difficulties and public issues.

Through their advocacy, Social Workers utilise skills in research, social policy development, administration, management, consultancy, education, training, supervision and evaluation to affect positive social change.

Graduate as a creative and ethical communicator who respectfully uses knowledge to meet the needs of diverse social work client groups, communities and organisations.
