Rory Truell: social work through the pandemic

From Saturday Morning, 9:05 am on 2 May 2020

As Secretary-General of The International Federation of Social Workers, New Zealander Rory Truell leads an organisation responsible for representing and supporting five million professional social workers in 141 countries worldwide. Beyond the medical and scientific challenges posed by Covid-19, and with levels of domestic violence spiking under lockdowns, social workers are also saving lives. He discusses how social workers are having to adapt to working in the pandemic, and how things might change for the profession in the future as a result of what's happening now.
