Supplementary written evidence submitted by the British Association of Social Workers

I gave evidence on 20 April 2016 at the Education Select Committee on Children’s Social Work Reform on behalf of British Association of Social Workers (BASW).

I was very pleased to address the committee on a range of matters relating to children’s social work reform and welcomed the opportunity to describe BASW’s vision for the professional body for social work. This includes describing BASW’s current achievements and future ambitions in fulfilling that role.

At the end of the session, panel members were asked to provide a detailed letter by May 11th the topic of which was clarified in a follow up email from the committee coordinator. We were asked to provide:

‘…..a letter to the Committee setting out your ideas on what a professional body for social work should be responsible for and what it should look like.’
