The regulation of social work and social workers in the United Kingdom

Position statement

BASW supports the need for statutory regulation of social work and social workers for public protection. The Association is exploring the shape of regulation with related stakeholders within the UK Standing Conference of Social Work and Social Workers, and with governments and regulators in the four countries of the UK. We are particularly working with stakeholders in England to shape the future of the new regulator in development, Social Work England.
