The All Party Parliamentary Group for Children (APPGC) is undertaking a new Inquiry that will explore the causes of different threshold levels for accessing children’s social care services. This follows APPGC’s Inquiry in 2016/17 ‘No Good Options’ which found significant variation in the number of children accessing children’s social care services across the country.
To help understanding of the issues, APPGC want to hear from the full range of children’s social worker’s – from newly qualified social workers, to independent reviewing Officers, principle social workers and senior managers.
Please take this opportunity to share your perspective and to ensure that the Inquiry is informed by social work’s real front-line experience. The National Children’s Bureau (NCB) is running the survey in association with the British Association of Social Workers (BASW). More information can be found here
The survey takes no more than 10-15 minutes to complete. All responses will remain confidential and anonymous. No individual will be identifiable from any published data or report.
If you are a social worker based in England please complete the survey: APPGC – Survey of social workers: Thresholds in children’s social care in England
