Branch – Western Australian
The Western Australia Branch, with over 1,300 members, is supported by a voluntary Branch Management Committee elected by the Branch membership.
The Branch’s key role is to provide local support for AASW members through a range of activities that enable members to network, develop practice skills and organise around social justice issues.
Seeking Practice and Networking Group convenors
If you have 2-3 hours a month to spare and are passionate about social work in your community of practice (eg Mental Health, Private Practice) or state/territory perhaps you would like to consider starting a Practice or Networking Group. Not only will you be able to give back to your fellow social workers and your profession, but you could also help shape activities providing peer support and networking (Practice and Networking Groups) and category 3 professional development both online and in person (Practice Groups only).
For more information, please contact Branch Services at [email protected].
World Social Work Day 2023
Thank you to our WA branch who came together in person and online on #WorldSocialWorkDay2023 to celebrate the social work profession and promote the vital work of social workers globally.
The first event held was a breakfast with speakers from Ishar Multicultural Women’s Health Services.
The second event was hosted by the WA Disability Practice Group in line with the theme of respecting diversity through joint social action.
