Volunteer Practice Groups

Practice Groups are a forum for social workers operating in different areas of practice or in specific regions to:

  • Meet and share common practice issues and knowledge
  • Promote and provide expertise within the group, to the AASW and the wider community
  • Develop and provide workshop and other events

The AASW welcomes applications from its members for new Practice Groups at any time.
