Social Work Scotland is the professional leadership body for the social work and social care professions.
We are a social work leadership body, led by our members. We work to influence policy and legislation and to support the development of the social work and social care workforce.
Our core team is based in Edinburgh, supporting our organisation as well as running a number of national projects around the design and implementation of policy and legislation. Find out more here.
We work closely with the Scottish Association of Social Work (SASW) – part of BASW – a membership-led, professional association for social workers across the UK, who also provide a union function. Visit their website here: https://www.basw.co.uk/scotland/
