SWAN in Wales

Practitioners and students from South Wales have been attending SWAN’s conferences and events from the time of the organisation’s launch.  This has included students from social work courses in Cardiff, Swansea and Bridgend and practitioners from all across South Wales.

Various events have been held in Wales including a very successful meeting held in Swansea around the issue of Personalisation. Please keep a look out for our future events on this website.

 If you want to get involved with any of our groups or have issues you want to raise with us please contact Swansea SWAN by clicking here, or South Wales SWAN (Cardiff area) by clicking here.

Whilst there had always been an intention to get something going locally it never quite happened. However as cuts loom across the council and with social workers continuing to feel dragged away from social work practice the situation has changed.
