Forensic mental health social work: capabilities framework

The capabilities framework sets out progression and developments for forensic mental health social workers.



The forensic social work capabilities framework is designed to build upon the generic requirements set out in the professional capabilities framework (PCF) for social workers.

The new capabilities, set within the existing domains of the PCF, set out a framework for post-qualifying progression and development for social workers practising within forensic mental health settings.
