BASW England is privileged to be sponsoring the Thank You Social Workers event by the Social Worker of the Year Awards.
The British Association of Social Workers (BASW) is the UK’s professional membership organisation for social work. We represent more than 21,000 members. We are the independent voice of social work and champion social work, helping members to achieve the highest professional standards.
This year has been like no other. Social workers have responded generously, ethically and expertly to the needs of social work and wider society throughout the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. This took place in the context of personal and professional worry and struggle. We are hugely grateful for the commitment and action shown by social workers.
BASW is committed to supporting BASW members and the wider social work sector as much as we can.
Our Vision for 2025 is that “Social work will be a thriving, influential, respected profession, improving lives and upholding people’s rights across the UK.”
- For social workers: Supporting, protecting and inspiring social workers in all roles, and the next generations of professionals.
- For social work: Developing professional ethics, practice, knowledge, research and learning.
- For a better society: Speaking out for social work and social workers on social justice, equality, poverty, human rights, oppression and other vital social issues in the UK and internationally.
We will continue to do this and to recognise and celebrate the contribution of social workers.
A huge thank you to every social worker – your role is absolutely vital in supporting our communities.
