Helping you develop your social workers


For child and family services

The recently published Putting children first – Delivering our vision for excellent children’s social care outlines in detail how the Government will deliver fundamental reform across children’s social care services in England.

 “Our vision is for a social work profession that has fully confident and highly capable social workers, who have been properly trained in the right way with the right knowledge and skills. They must have the opportunity to work in supportive environments, that facilitate critical thinking and enable them to make the best decisions for children and families.” Putting children first

We're supporting employers to deliver this vision through local area social work networks. We're also providing information and the opportunity to discuss and share good practice.
