BASW 50 Vlog | July Update

BASW 50 Virtual Festival

As part of this ongoing series of vlogs with BASW CEO Ruth Allen, Ruth reflects on the success of the recent BASW 50 Festival. 

We are pleased to share filmed highlights to watch the BASW 50 Virtual Festival again for the first time.

550 registered for the event with over 360 joining us live for at least one of the BASW 50th Anniversary festival sessions in June 2020, raising £3640 for three important charities/campaigns - the Social Workers Benevolent TrustChild Poverty Action Group and ATD Fourth World. 

We were delighted to be joined by special guests from across the social work landscape, including author and poet Lemn Sissay, David Brindle from the Guardian newspaper, plus music and a host of contributors from practice, leadership, lived experience of services, education, research, writing and activism.
