We want to enable this practice and increase public understanding of what social work offers.
Our current main actions are: -
Striving to increase time for relational social work through the BASW England 80:20 campaign.
Recognising and celebrating relational practice, through events such as World Social Work Day, BASW conferences across the whole UK,
Ensuring social work’s relational role is upheld in policy.
