Social worker faces GSCC on conduct charges

A social worker who allegedly failed to follow child protection procedures will appear before the General Social Care Council conduct committee in London next week.

The registrant is alleged to have breached the GSCC’s code of practice by failing to initiate a child protection inquiry, inform the police or child response unit and arrange overnight accommodation in a safe place for three children after a disclosure of physical abuse by one of them.

The social worker also faces charges of failing to inform the interim team manager and others of those events at a strategy meeting, as well as failing to record action taken after the disclosure.
