The Global Social Service Workforce Alliance has launched a Call to Action aimed at strengthening the international social service sector to improve the protection of vulnerable children in accordance with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Strengthening the Social Service Workforce to Better Protect Children and Achieve the SDGs, sets out the following:
We must work together to improve protection, health and well-being outcomes for children, youth, families and communities as outlined in the Sustainable Development Goals. These outcomes will only be achieved with a strong social service workforce backed by political, financial, technical and moral support. We, the undersigned, call on national and local governments, in coordination with national and global partners, to strengthen the social service workforce.
HealthProm, along with other international organisations, has signed this Call to Action. The full document is available below. More information about the Global Social Service Workforce Alliance can be found here.
