`Blundering social workers` website condemned

The British Association of Social Workers has condemned a
website which names and shames social workers and vilifies the

cites alleged scandals involving social workers, as well as judges
and solicitors.

In April, the site was taken down by its former internet host
following a complaint from Nottingham council about “defamatory and
slanderous remarks”.

Further information has been removed since then, following
another complaint to its new host from Bedfordshire council.

BASW immediate past chairperson Gail Tucker said: “Whatever the
legitimate grievances of some service users, this is no way to
address them.

“This is no way to improve public services whether it’s
social services, the police, or the judiciary. There are proper
mechanisms for bringing these grievances forward.”
