Here to Help

We help deliver effective and competent services, accessible to children, families and schools by maintaining a network of fellow professionals and providing a forum for members to share, support and consult.

We have links with Government and other political and professional bodies including the Department for Education, Teacher Associations and Unions and our sister organisation NASWE, the National Association for Support Workers in Education.

AEWM Objectives

  • To promote and improve the ethos of social inclusion;
  • To encourage the development and training of all staff in education welfare and social inclusion; and
  • To inform members on developments in education welfare and social inclusion.
Membership Matters

Members are kept informed on current issues and potential changes affecting their work. They receive training and support, and the opportunity to comment on consultation documents. Regional groups meet quarterly to provide a forum for debate, exchange of views and a vehicle for the provision and discussion of information
