If I was in charge…

By Richard Devine, Social Worker for Bath and North East Somerset Council

I was invited to write a piece for Social Work News. In this piece I explored what changes I would make if I was in charge. Because I lack imagination and creativity, I think the ideas I put forward are easily achievable and already have a good evidence base supporting them. In fact, many of the ideas detailed below are being implemented in BANES.

I intend to write every fortnight about matters related to child protection, children and families, attachment, and trauma.  Or you can read previous blogs here.
