Facilitation of Consultation Events for Children and Young People who use Social Work Services

The College of Social Work is being established following the recommendations of the Social Work Task Force. A development group responsible for guiding the first phase arranged for a wide consultation about the purpose and functions of the College. As part of this work programme, Action for Children was commissioned to facilitate 8 events with children and young people who use social work services. In particular, the brief asked for the consultations to engage with young carers, looked after children and young people, disabled children and young people and asylum seekers. Where practical, parents and carers of the children and young people were also to be provided with an opportunity to participate.
