ADCS president aims to improve public image of care and end ‘formulaic’ social work

Dave Hill has used his inaugural speech as the new president of the Association of Directors of Children’s Services to promise closer co-operation with adult service directors.

“There remains effectively an underclass of families often repeating intergenerational cycles of deprivation, lack of opportunity and poor outcomes and we need to focus harder and do better,” he said. “Improving outcomes for children means breaking the cycle of adult disadvantage. Good social work for adults also helps children.”
