BASW Membership

By Gemma Raw

The professional membership organisation for social work in the UK is The British Association of Social Workers, also known as BASW. Its reach spans the whole of the UK, with regional webpages detailing local events and activities.

These include:

All members sign-up to BASW’s code of ethics, which states the values and ethical principles on which the profession is based.

Professional development

BASW greatly assists its members with their professional development. There are a wide range of online resources, programmes and frameworks to help social workers meet their CPD requirements for their regulatory body. 

Championing the Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF)

BASW makes it easy to navigate your way through the nine levels of social work in England. To identify which level you are at in your career, you can download a copy of their PCF fan graphic. 

At Sanctuary Social Care, we help candidates at every stage in their career.
