The British Union of Social Work Employees has called for
reassurances from the NSPCC that the charity’s restructuring
process will not lead to redundancies.
Steve Anslow, BUSWE general secretary, said that the
restructuring was being carried out in a “piecemeal” fashion, and
that the 500 BUSWE members who worked for the NSPCC wanted it to be
handled as a whole.
Staff at the NSPCC received a written response from chief
executive Mary Marsh following claims that the charity was
reviewing its services, planning to axe jobs and scaling back its
plans for projects.
In her response, Marsh told employees that the restructuring was
about ensuring that the best organisation structure was in place to
deliver a national strategy through local projects, and that the
alignment process was designed to ensure that resources were being
used to maximum effect.
