This survey is being conducted to identify the issues which contribute to social workers’ sense of professional identity across the island of Ireland.

The findings will be used to inform work by the social work professional bodies and regulators in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

All responses are anonymous and none of the questions will identify the organisation you work for. The information collected via the survey will be stored by the British Association of Social Workers and kept for a maximum of three years.
