SWU launch consultation in response to new inquiry

General Secretary urges social workers to help SWU and BASW create better working conditions

John McGowan, SWU General Secretary, is calling upon social workers to answer a few questions in an effort create better working conditions in their ongoing campaigning with BASW.

The consultation has been organised in response to the Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee launching a new inquiry into funding and provision of local authorities’ children’s services.

The inquiry will investigate what impact public spending has had on the provision of care services, and the approaches local authorities have taken in addressing funding constraints.

It will consider how financial support for children’s services can be made more sustainable in the short and long term and examine the potential for innovative approaches to the design and delivery of services.
