Your Professional Questions Answered

AskBASW is a dedicated e-helpline for responding to professional queries and concerns.

BASWs team of registered and experienced social work experts will tap into the Association’s membership, its extensive network of special interest groups and links with academics and researchers, to help deal with your practice questions.

Ask BASW is distinct from employment and conduct issues, which are handled separately by the Advice & Representation Service, and is specifically aimed at resolving member queries about practice issues [see examples on the right].
