Social Work Policy Institute


The Social Work Policy Institute (SWPI) is a think tank established within the NASW Foundation.  It examines issues that relate to the work of social workers, including how to serve people who have multiple or complex needs and how public agencies and other structures deliver health and human services.  Since SWPI's founding in 2009 the NASW Foundation has raised and invested more than a million dollars in its research, publications and events.

The Social Work Policy Institute's purpose is threefold:  to strengthen social work’s voice in public policy deliberations; to inform policymakers through the collection and dissemination of information on social work effectiveness; and, to create a forum to examine current and future issues in health care and social service delivery. It examines issues that relate to the work of social workers, including how to serve people who have multiple or complex needs, and how public agencies and other structures deliver health and human services.  We provide highlights of the Institute's work here - please visit the SWPI website for full information about its research, publications, events, and other relevant information.
