Invitation to comment: A vision for social work (Children and Families / Adults)

BASW is inviting final member comment on the attached two documents.

As the professional association for social work and social workers, BASW is setting out the key priorities for the future. Both documents have already been the subject of extensive consultation with members, stakeholders and people with lived experience. If you have already contributed - thank you again for all your comments.

We are now looking to incorporate final changes - we welcome any comments you might have.

If you wish to comment please bear in mind that the documents do not attempt to describe the richness of social work across the four nations of the UK, rather they are vision documents which are best:

  • Short and focussed.
  • Written in plain English so that they can be understood and owned outside the profession
  • Presented in a format that is accessible for key audiences in social work and their stakeholders
  • Sufficiently ‘high level’ that the recommendations are relevant to all four countries that make up the UK.

Please send any comments to by Monday 21 December 2020.
