Sacap launches Bachelor of Social Work degreeOur world of work is changing so rapidly that many young people wonder whether their chosen career might exist once their studies are completed and they are ready to enter the workplace. Social work is one of those in-demand careers in South Africa. Across the globe, the focus on social justice, climate crisis impacts and economic inequality is only intensifying, and the world's need for people with relevant skills and abilities to help change lives for the better is increasing all the time.

Mental health in the time of CovidThere's lots of talk about the impact of the global pandemic on mental health; but so far, little action. There is still no integrated Covid-19 plan to address mental health, along with prevalent and linked issues such as gender-based violence and food insecurity.
