AASW social media

The AASW is using social media as a platform to communicate with members, social workers, the media, policy makers and members of the general public. It is used to distribute information including AASW media releases, publications, submissions, campaigns, CPD activities and opportunities, and to encourage discussion about issues relating to the profession and social justice. AASW social media feeds are managed by the AASW Communications Team and we are committed to ensuring that we participate in social media in a responsible way.


Twitter is an internet-based real-time information network which allows people to write short messages (tweets) on their Twitter page and to others.


The AASW Facebook page allows us to share information and connect with people. People who like the AASW page will get updates in their News Feed.


Vimeo is a video-sharing website on which users can upload, share and view videos.
