We are currently consulting on proposals to increase the renewal fee from £90 to £106 per year, with a similar level of increases to the other fees we charge
The consultation takes place in the context of keeping pace with the cost of inflation and the impact on our operations and income when social workers in England transfer to Social Work England in 2019.
The increases are needed to support our new strategic focus of promoting professionalism and preventing fitness to practise issues from arising. We also need to continue to invest in the services we offer to registrants.
Social workers in England will be moving to a new regulator next year. If there is no change to this, these proposals will not affect them. However, in order to continue practising, they must renew their registration with us by Friday 30 November 2018.
