Working to a set of clear standards under an ethical code is essential in the community services sector, no matter the service field. After extensive consultation, the Australian Community Workers Association (ACWA) has launched the revised Code of ethics and new Practice guidelines that lay down the standards expected of professionals and needed for a nationally skilled workforce.
The guidelines include indicators and are matched with a self-assessment tool designed for practitioners to identify their skill gaps and training needs. However, it is equally important service providers review the Code and Guidelines to ensure their policies do not direct workers to act in conflict with the professional framework.
