SA Branch Practice Groups

Practice Groups operating at Branch level serve the function of providing 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 education sessions, symposiums and other functions.

The South Australian Branch have a number of very active Practice Groups. If you are interested in getting involved in an existing Practice Group, you are invited to contact the Practice Group Convenor/s directly via the contact details outlined on each Practice Group website page listed below.
