The Association aims to represent all palliative care social workers in the UK, wherever they are and whatever their setting.

We have an elected national committee that provide leadership and direct the work of the Association. They are supported by the regional group representative and are accountable to the membership. All officers of the Association volunteer their time in addition to their work responsibilities.


The National Committee is made up of volunteer members who serve for a term of 3 years at a time. The current committee is made up of the following people


To ensure all our members are linked in to the association and feel included in the wider running, organisation and direction of the association, we operate a regional group structure. So whether they be based in rural Cornwall, the Highlands of Scotland or the hustle and bustle of Central London, you are in contact with your local colleagues. The UK is divided in to seven regional groups, and each area has two or more representatives. They welcome new members, organise local meetings and act as a direct connection between the executive and the wider membership. If you have anything you would like to discuss, are looking for advice or simply need a friendly ear then your group rep would be a good port of call. Please feel free to get in touch with your local reps.
