The government has announced an independent review on the education of social workers. This seems to be concerned particularly with education in relation to adult service users. See below the official announcement and the links which it provides. David Croisdale-Appleby who is to Chair the review, is Chair of Skills For Care the national organization concerned with the social care workforce. His experience relates to social care rather than social work.
Please support us to reverse the decision to close down the LAAC (Looked After and Adopted Children) Psychology Service at Dudley CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services). This service provides dedicated therapeutic support for looked after and adopted children in the Dudley borough as well as support, consultation and training to parents, foster carers, social workers and other professionals.
Below, Liz Davies of London Metropolitan University writes on organised crime against children and investigations following Tom Watson MP’s Prime Minister’s Question and important links to social media as the main source of information about current investigations. Liz encourages you to add supportive comments to the sites listed below. You can contact Liz with any information you have which relates to these enquiries or any questions.
