"As a social work manager, I am keen to provide education and training opportunities for staff. The IASW has been a great resource for me in that area. I have also benefitted professionally from membership of an associated group within the IASW, the collective advocacy of these groups, supported by the IASW, has given social workers a voice at national level."
~ Amanda Casey
"When I started my job as a mental health social worker in 1999, my supervisor handed me an application form to join the IASW. She explained how important it was to be a member of the Association in terms of my own professional development and to support the development of our profession. I have learned so much from being part of the activities of my mental health special interest group and I have made many good friends too."
~ Frank Browne
"I feel it is only by building a strong social work community, through IASW membership, that we can become a more powerful, unified, ‘listened to’ voice for both ourselves as a social work profession, and ultimately for the people with whom we work."
