DfE Data on the Children’s Social Work Workforce

Commenting on data published by the DfE on the children’s social work workforce Rachael Wardell, Chair of the ADCS Workforce Development Policy Committee, said:

“We know that high quality social workers are vital to the task of improving outcomes for some of our most vulnerable children and their families and the key to delivering sustainable, good services is stability of the workforce. Children and families themselves tell us that this makes a big difference to the services they receive yet each local authority faces its own challenges with recruitment and retention. As leaders of children’s services we are absolutely committed to promoting one of the most important professions in the country by encouraging better public understanding of the role and we hope that the government’s continued investment in the social work profession will contribute to this aim.”
