Government publishes draft regulations to establish Social Work England

Topics covered: Ridouts professional advice

The Government has set up a consultation on the secondary legislative framework of The Children and Social Work Act 2017. Much of the detail of the legal framework to this Act is to be set out in regulations, and this consultation seeks views on the policy underpinning those regulations. These will cover the full range of Social Work England’s regulatory functions. It sets out:

  • the policy background to the reform of social work regulation;
  • our approach and aims in setting up Social Work England;
  • our approach to establishing the secondary legislative framework for Social Work England; and
  • the key propositions that we are consulting on.

The consultation closes on 21 March 2018 and the regulations will change as a result of the consultation. For more information please go to
