Final chance for members to have their say on how BASW is run

Please note the member consultation on BASW Articles is now closed.

Thank you to all members who have taken part in the consultation on BASW’s constitution. 

How to take part

Modernising our constitution

During 2017 BASW undertook a review of our constitution and governance arrangements and as part of this members have been sharing views on our Articles.

The draft Articles have been produced following feedback from members who have taken part in the consultation that has been running since July 2017.

The Articles underpin the purpose and objectives of BASW and cover how the association is led by our members. Our aspiration is to have a constitution that will promote BASW as an outward facing organisation that is an even better champion of social workers and the people we work with.

We hope you will take this opportunity to contribute your views to this extremely important work for BASW.
