The IASW are interested to find out about the work you are now doing, in very difficult circumstances, to hear your concerns and how social work is responding. What you tell us will inform our work and will be used to reflect your views in how we represent the social work profession and our service users with the aim of shaping practice and policy.
The British Association of Social Workers (BASW) have kindly given the IASW permission to replicate their Social work during Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Ongoing Survey, which is already underway, and to adapt that survey with some additional questions. The survey data provided by you and your colleagues will create a record of social work practice in Ireland during Covid-19 and can also be used to compare with BASW’s findings. All responses to the survey are anonymous.
The survey will be live for a number of months and questions will be adapted over time to explore emerging themes and issues in more depth. Please fill out this ongoing survey as many times as you want to tell us what is happening and raise social work related queries. Unfortunately, we will not be able to respond directly to individual concerns.
The IASW would like to acknowledge and thank the Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA) for the funding support provided for this work.

We are keen to share the survey as widely as we can across the profession, regardless of IASW membership, so please do forward the survey link to your social work colleagues and friends. The more responses we have, the stronger our voice.
