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 our 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 us to understand this issue, we are keen to hear directly from social workers about their experience of dealing with care thresholds, and about how decisions are made in practice. We want to hear from those from the full range of children’s social worker roles - from newly qualified social workers, to independent reviewing Officers, principle social workers and senior managers.
This survey is your opportunity to share your perspective and to ensure that our Inquiry is informed by real front-line experience of social workers. The National Children’s Bureau (NCB) is running the survey in association with the British Association of Social Workers (BASW).
It should take 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.
