What can be expected of social workers who work with children and families?


CWDC (Children’s Workforce Development Council) has been asked by the Development of Children, Schools and Families to produce ‘a statement of what can be expected of social workers who work with children and families’.

This statement will build on the detailed work already carried out by the GSCC (General Social Care Council) on the roles of social workers.

To achieve this CWDC are looking for social workers and managers from local authorities and voluntary organisations employing children’s social workers, and professionals who work alongside children’s social workers, to attend a short focus group to discuss the statement.
