SASW is the independent professional membership organisation for social workers and social work students in Scotland (part of BASW UK). Our members are committed to the highest standards of practice and ethics. We offer services to protect, support and develop your social work career. We are committed to social justice and recognise the worldwide evidence of continued structural racism and discrimination affecting minority communities. We aim to develop structures which confront racism and reflect our commitment to the core values of social work.

We believe social workers from black and ethnic minority backgrounds cannot and should not be expected to resolve issues of racism, exclusion, or discrimination in social work. We need to hear from you so that we can better understand your experiences and use these in educating and equipping all of us to strengthen anti-racism across all social work settings in Scotland.

We appreciate you taking the time to answer these questions, to help shape the direction SASW will take in addressing racism, exclusion, discrimination and oppression.
