Social Work Student Bursary Campaign Success
A major triumph for BASW Cymru in 2022 was the joint lobbying with Masters students and Social Workers Union (SWU) for an increase in financial support for social work students.
The Welsh government announced that from September 2022, the bursary for both undergraduates and postgraduates in Wales will be increased by over 50%. A great success!
Political workstreams and collaboration with Welsh Government
BASW Cymru has actively engaged with the Children & Families Cross Party Group and further discussion with Members of Senedd continue. We have submitted numerous governmental consultation responses including some in collaboration with Social Workers Union (SWU) regarding LGBTQIA+ rights
