BASW Position Statement: Surrogacy (2016)

BASW recognises that there are a range of ways in which families are formed through assisted reproduction, bringing both rewards and challenges. We neither promote nor condemn assisted reproduction, including surrogacy. Our social work focus, based on our understanding of child development, research and practice wisdom, is on the well-being and human rights of the parties involved, principally the offspring that are conceived and the offspring of the surrogate or gamete donor.
