Social Work, Integration and Integrity : Exploring our Role in Improving Integrated Support for People
3rd UK Standing Conference for Social Work and Social Workers
Each year, BASW invites social workers, policy makers and people using services to come together across UK to explore specific professional issues in depth.
Following brief updates on actions on previous themes (social work education and improving working conditions for social workers) the 3rd UK Standing Conference will focus substantially on social work in multi-professional and multi-agency contexts UK-wide. With practical examples, we will explore how social work’s purpose, practices and ethics can impact on quality and equalities within services and communities.
We will explore what being a human rights and social justice profession means – and should mean. And we will explore what needs to happen next to ensure the development of social work’s role and impact as service and system integration develops in all four UK nations.

BASW is committed to improving inclusion and equalities across all our activities. We aim for: increasing diversity of participants and key contributors; increasing the involvement of social workers in direct practice and people using services in our events; reducing jargon and language that is hard to understand; meeting the specific access needs of participants wherever possible.
