The commissioners at Channel 4 are really spoiling us at the moment, with a whole host of programmes about social work in the pipeline.
Yesterday was the first episode of ‘15,000 Kids and Counting’, a series that boasts “unparalleled access” to the entire adoption process, filming social workers, birth parents and adopters.
It threw up all sorts of interesting practice issues and dilemmas and, with any luck, could boost the public image of children’s social work in the same way that BBC2’s Protecting Our Children managed to.
We organised a live chat so that all social care professionals watching on Thursday could react to the episode and discuss their views in a safe and engaging space. You can replay the chat below.
15,000 Kids and Counting will air on Channel 4 at 9pm on Thursday 3 April. More information on the series can be found here.
