Janaury 2012 - BASW England Consultation Response to Education Select Committee Consultation – Revised Terms of Reference: The Child Protection System in England

BASW is pleased that the Education Committee has taken the decision to call for additional evidence for the Inquiry into the Child Protection System in England. This is such a fundamentally important issue that sometimes receives a disservice when the broad brush approach is applied. It is only right and proper therefore, that the committee would want to delve deeper and give greater consideration to some pertinent issues that have come to light from the original evidence gathered. Given that this second stage understandably demands a quick turnaround, we have produced a practice based response drawing on the experiences of some of our most experienced members involved in contemporary social work practice with children and families.
