Will you sign our letter to Senators?

The Senate Inquiry has just released its Report on the Job-Ready Graduates Bill and it DOES NOT secure the future of social work in Australia.

With the bill expected to go to a vote in the next two weeks, we are now in the final stages of the campaign. So it is critical that every Senator hears our concerns about the legislation and what they can do to #SaveSocialWorkAU before they go to vote.

That’s why we have set up a ‘Letter to the Senators’ page on our website, to allow you to send a message to every Senator telling them how they can secure the future of social work in Australia.

Thank you for your ongoing support and please feel free to contact savesocialworkaustralia@gmail.com to discuss how you can help the campaign or visit our website for more information.
