BASW Membership

Social Work Employment Services (SWES) is working in partnership with the British Association of Social Workers (BASW) The service is solely for the use of its members and any surplus we make is donated back to their advice, representation and membership services.

By only opening the service to those with BASW membership within a working category, we can ensure that those practicing independently have the highest level of protection and representation in their work.

BASW membership is paid monthly but the cost varies depending on your length of practice. However, this small additional cost gives you access to a range of other great benefits that are especially important if you are independent.

Benefits of BASW membership include:

  • Insurance
  • Advice and representation
  • Access to online learning and resources
  • Discounted training courses and events

By signing up to BASW, you will join a community of over 21,000 social work professionals committed to the highest standards of practice and ethics.

You can find out more about BASW member benefits on their website.
