The BASW 50 two-day festival marked 50 years of BASW and was a unique opportunity to explore social work past and present and look to the future.

We were delighted to be joined by special guests from across the social work landscape, including author and poet Lemn Sissay, David Brindle from the Guardian newspaper, plus music and a host of contributors from practice, leadership, lived experience of services, education, research, writing and activism. 

We also received lots of Happy Birthday messages including very special video messages from Jo Brand and Kriss Akabusi, ministers, MPs, social workers, BASW members and more...
