The Social Work History Network exists to explore the nature and growth of social work in order to inform contemporary policy and practice.

Founded in 2000, it is an informal network of social workers, historians, archivists, researchers, educators, students, and social work policy makers.

The Network is an independent group. Its website and event programme are hosted by the NIHR Policy Research Unit in Health and Social Care Workforce at King's.

Next meeting
