Virtual networks during the Covid-19 pandemic

The current pandemic has introduced new challenges in connecting with other self-employed social workers. In direct response, BASW Independents hosted a series of virtual support space meetings for self-employed members based on their specialism welcoming attendees from across the UK. Local networks in Cymru, Northern Ireland and Scotland continued to meet virtually during this time. 

Moving forward, we're keen to establish groups in England more regionally to support the transition into meeting in person when members feel confident to do so. Members are welcome to join more than one network as we recognise many consultants work in several regions.
