It’s all about Trust

So what do we mean by trust? asks ADCS Vice President, Alison Michalska:

‘Ask someone to define ‘trust’ and you’ll get a variety of answers. The dictionary tells us that ‘trust’ is a ‘reliance on the integrity, strength, confidence and ability of something/someone’. Trust implies depth, assurance and a feeling of certainty that a person or thing will not fail.

Trust is essential in delivering the best children’s services. Trust within our workforce goes both ways – social workers must trust in the leadership of services, and they must be trusted to get on and do the job that they came into the profession to do. The individuals who make up the children’s social care workforce have the opportunity to have a genuinely life-changing impact on our most vulnerable children. They will often find themselves to be the one person in a child’s life who is both trusted enough to understand the problems the child faces and also skilled and confident enough to bring about the change that is needed to address them.
