Join BASW Online

We’d just like to tell you a few things before you start :

  • BASW’s membership year runs from October to September. If you’re joining us part way through the membership year and want to pay annually, rather than on a monthly basis, a pro-rata fee will be applied.
  • We’ll contact you again before our new membership year starts in October, to let you know of any membership fee changes and to collect your next year’s subscription.
  • Once you’ve joined today, you can access our all of our services immediately, but will only be entitled to be represented by our Advice and Representation team once you’ve been with us for over 3 months (except for pre-existing cases).
  • Please note that any promotional discounts apply to your base membership only and not to any “additional membership options” such as journals or our “Independents” packages.
  • Why not take the opportunity to opt into membership of The Social Workers Union?
  • If you live and work outside the UK, please e-mail our team at

Please select your employment status and click “next” to continue.
