BASW needs to keep developing to ensure we are strong and effective for the future of social work. The Finance & Organisational Development Committee keeps our finances on track and also considers and recommends developments in terms of staffing, organisational structure, governance and new initiatives. As a member of the Committee you will be at the heart of ensuring BASW continues on its successful journey of development. The Committee reports to BASW Council with its recommendations.

Equalities and Diversity: BASW is committed to an action plan on equality, diversity and inclusion to make the Association’s leadership more representative and diverse.
Eligible members from different backgrounds and identities, and any stage of career, are encouraged to apply. We aim to be inclusive and remove barriers to involvement based on age, disability, sex, gender/ gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, pregnancy/maternity, marriage and civil partnership.
