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.
  • If you live and work outside the UK, please e-mail our team at
  • For a limited time, members of The College of Social Work may access continuity of their TCSW insurance cover by joining BASW providing you are eligible and agree to the Terms & Conditions. Whilst TCSW members are welcome to join BASW at any time, you must join by 31 August 2015 in order to access the continued insurance cover*.

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


* Terms & conditions apply. Eligible applicants must join BASW by 31 August 2015 with a valid payment method, and declare at joining they wish to access the continued professional indemnity and/or public liability insurance cover.
