Comment: ONS gender pay gap figures

Rachel Dickinson, ADCS President, said:

“Social workers fulfil an important role on behalf of society, they are at the heart of systems that protect children from harm and support families facing challenges, such as poverty, domestic abuse, poor parental mental health and substance misuse. It’s important that social workers are properly recognised and remunerated for their part in keeping vulnerable children and young people safe from harm. As leaders of children’s services we are committed to achieving a diverse workforce through encouraging more people well-suited to the role to choose social work as a career.”
