Tackling Racism at the Organisational Level: Working on Agency Policies and Practices

Part of the Practical Social Work book series (PSWS)


Focusing on one’s own practice and developing anti-racist struggles in relation to that is important. However, gains brought about through individual effort will be limited unless changes are also wrought in agency policy and practices. Organisational changes which shift agency policy and practices in egalitarian directions are necessary to provide the supportive foundation for consolidating, extending and further developing the anti-racist social work practice which is undertaken by individual practitioners. Moreover, initiatives in this arena must be buttressed by anti-racist policies and practices in both the local and central state apparatuses.
