Victorian Social Work Practice Groups
Practice Groups 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, symposia and other functions.
The Victorian 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.
