About the London Local Authority Forum

BASW England has created the London Local Authority Forum which meets at 1pm on the first Wednesday of every month. 

Through these regular forums, we aim to -

  • To create a safe space for peer-to-peer support across London, which knows no geographical boundary.
  • To capture and share best practice from both grassroots and senior levels, ensuring that crucial knowledge is circulated in a timely manner. From here, BASW can signpost social workers to training opportunities, CPD, as well as our campaigns in specialist areas, where social workers can make a real change to practice and policy.
  • To provide a forum to celebrate diversity and to provide support for social workers of diverse backgrounds across Black and Ethnic Minority Communities, LGBT+, Gender and Disability.

If you would like to be added to a mailing list and/or Facebook Group for alerts about upcoming events or join, please email with your name, email address, membership number (if applicable) and Local authority.
