We’re stronger with you as a member. Help us shape social work leadership now and for the future.
Membership is open to a whole range of people and organisations.
We create a variety of resources, including publications, consultation responses and press releases; as well as useful ways to support your knowledge and understanding of key developments in social work.
We run a range of events some of which are for members only, but most are open to people with an interest in social work and social care.
We find a number of ways to get that view across: responding to consultations and calls for evidence; briefings to MSPs; event reports and publications based on our own work.
