Community Care has launched a survey of social workers’ caseloads to build an accurate picture of their level of work.
While the author of the serious case review labelled the caseload “excessive”, social workers have called it “completely unimaginable” and “immoral”.
The Social Work Task Force decided against a national limit for case loads, arguing that employers should be responsible for capping social workers’ caseloads according the complexity of cases.
Answers to Community Care’s caseloads survey will be anonymous. The survey takes less than five minutes to complete. To take part click here.
