New TV drama to explore role of social worker in adoption - we want your views

Channel 4’s drama, Kiri, which promises to explore race, identity and the intervention of a social worker in an adoption, is set to air its first episode on Wednesday 9th January at 9pm and is expected to be seen by millions.

TV stations and programme makers can have a huge impact on public opinion about social services, as well as on those who have used services and public professionals – like social workers – tasked with delivering them. 

Child protection is a complex area and it is important to see more TV and radio representation of it and crucially accurate storytelling.

We would like to hear your views on how the social work profession is depicted in the drama.
