BASW 2020 Vision

BASW’s 2020 Vision is our commitment to develop the impact and effectiveness of the Association and to meet the expectations of our members, potential members and the wider social work and social care sector. The update to the Vision in  December 2016 presents key highlights from achievements so far and looks forward to our ambitions. 

2020 Vision: 

...We plan to: 
  • underpin membership growth with a constantly improving, high quality, independent professional service to members. This includes responding to queries; providing advice, support, and information sharing and engaging members in stakeholder, policy, practice and advisory groups in order to draw fully upon practice-based experience and critical thinking...
  • further enhance the attractiveness of what we offer to members and prospective members (for example training and development, written guides, magazines and journals, as well as individual and collective representation, involvement and activist opportunities) in order to encourage membership as the ‘norm’ for all social workers in the UK – from student days, throughout their practice, to retirement and beyond...

This consultation will inform business planning, immediate and future member benefit development
