The Children and Social Work Bill is a troubling piece of social policy, failing to address serious issues in social work funding and direction.

You can find a joint response to the Children and Social Work Bill, composed by BASW, APSW, JUC-SWEC, SWAN, SWU and Unison here.
You can also find attached a letter distributed by the government outlining the new policy directions to be achieved with this bill. The letter invites feedback - SWAN suggests we give it!
