013 Bridget Robb BASW Chief Executive
An excellent interview with Bridget Robb – Chief Executive at the British Association of Social Workers. We discuss the state of social work in the UK and globally, the political and environmental factors of social work and the role of the British Association of Social Workers (BASW).
As a Former Chair of BASW I value it as the largest professional association for social work in the UK, with offices in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. They promote the best possible social work services for all people who may need them, while also securing the well being of social workers.
Included is also my BBC Radio Bristol Radio interview discussing cyber bullying and the profound damage it has on young people. The traumas can lead to suicide and social exclusion. I offer advice on how to support the person involved for parents and carers.
My closing thoughts are on the Northern Ireland Historic Abuse Inquiry.
