About Ghaswa

Our Mission Statement

Created in February 2018 by Mr Kwaku Afram and subsequently joined by a number of Ghanaian Social Workers within the Midlands, UK, GHASWA is a vibrant, dynamic and has proved to be one of the fastest growing within the midland and beyond in the United Kingdom. The Association is guided by a constitution, structured to outline the terms of its administration and how the organisation should be governed. GHASWA will continue to make significant contributions in the areas of social work research, practice, and advocacy.

The Ghanaian Social Workers Association (GHASWA) is made up of a group of Ghanaian Social Workers residing in or have a connection to the Midlands and beyond with the aim to

  • To reach out to the Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) communities, with a starting point of the Ghanaian communities in the Midlands. We seek to advocate for, support, empower and educate BME communities by raising awareness of key topics such as Safeguarding Children and their families, Domestic Abuse, Mental Health etc. We hope to work in collaboration with the Local Authorities, Children Trusts and other professionals and organisations in relevant fields.
  • We also aim to reach out to the wider community through our outreach programs, workshops, forums, radio and television programs, training and other useful platforms.
  • We also aim to inform, promote, develop and defend good practice of social work and social workers.
  • Seek to contribute to promoting a better society especially for the BME communities and to prevent children from coming into the care system.
  • We are also hoping to link in with and set up Interpreting Services and Family Support Services.
