Consultation - Aotearoa New Zealand Association of Social Workers (ANZASW) Expanding Membership» 26/10/2010, Posted by Site Admin
Aotearoa New Zealand Association of Social Workers (ANZASW) is consulting on a proposal to provide professional body coverage for the allied social services support worker workforce in addition to social workers. This workforce could include:
- Youth workers
- Mental health and addiction support workers
- Health promoters
- Disability support workers

In essence professional body coverage for this workforce will provide leadership, a Code of Ethics, Practice Standards, a Competency Assessment Programme, Continuing Professional Development activities and local Branch and Roopu networks and accesses to Interest Groups, indemnity insurance and a complaint management system.
ANZASW is seeking feedback from as many stakeholders as possible.
