BASW teams up with new ITV breakfast show

6th September 2010

BASW is teaming up with ITV’s new flagship breakfast programme, Daybreak, which launched today, to undertake a major survey of social workers, timed to coincide with the publication of professor Eileen Munro’s initial report on reducing the bureaucracy in children’s services.

Social workers with any level of experience of the challenges facing child protection practitioners can go online now to respond to a quickfire, eight question survey, with the results set to be revealed on Daybreak – co-hosted by Adrian Chiles and Christine Beakley – in late September.

Visit to respond to the anonymous survey – it won’t take more than two minutes to complete. The deadline for responding is Monday 20 September.

Urging members to log-on and answer the questions, BASW chief executive Hilton Dawson told PSW: “This is an excellent opportunity for social workers to have their views heard by a significant TV audience.

“The more social workers who respond to the survey the better – take this excellent opportunity to tell the public the truth about the challenges you face in your daily life and about what you need to improve the protection we offer to children and young people.”
