‘Social work must challenge political and public anxieties about child protection’

Originally published in Community Care on November 15, 2017.

There needs to be robust and honest dialogue about the uncertainties and complexities of child protection social work, and the policies needed to achieve real change, says Jo Warner.

[…] social work’s mandate to intervene in families should be revisited. In particular, we need to scrutinise more closely the political and public anxieties that underpin the cycle of crisis and reform in children’s services, and challenge these rather than accept them as given.

Our mission is to help bring about improvements in practice and policy. Holding children at the centre of what we do through our work with and for them, we aim to lead and promote excellent care and services. The partnership consists of an elected Chair and elected Regional Leads who represent their regions at a national level (two from each of the nine regions within England).
