Who would you nominate as the UK’s most influential social worker? 2

The BASW journal, Professional Social Work (PSW), has launched a search to find the individuals you believe have had the biggest influence on social work in the UK.

The top five as chosen by you will be published in the Encylopedia of Social Work, a US-based international resource for students, scholars and practitioners.

This is a good chance to promote and celebrate the best of social work so PSW is calling on the workforce to get involved.

The person you choose may be dead or alive and does not even need to be a social worker – they’re looking for the people you think have made the biggest impact on your profession. As well as social workers, they could be politicians, important figures from history, reformers, academics and humanitarians.

As well as your social work hero, PSW would also like to hear about your fantasy social workers. Which famous person do you believe would make the best social worker and who would make the worst?

The most popular answers will be published in a future edition of PSW.
