BASW England & SWU response to Social Work England consultation on appointment rules
This consultation response was completed in conjunction with the Social Workers’ Union (SWU) and representative of their members’ views. SWU is the only UK trade union for, and run by, qualified and registered social workers. SWU is the fastest growing trade union in the UK with 12,000 members. SWU works in partnership with BASW to protect social work professionals in their workplace. Having a professional association and trade union working together is important for the social work profession. Therefore, this response should be considered as the official views of both organisations.
