CWDC creates online children’s centre

Kirsty-McGregor-v2.jpgThe Children’s Workforce Development Council has created a new online children’s centre on the DirectgovKids website for children, which aims to inform five to 11-year-olds about social workers and foster carers.

It tells children: “There are lots of people whose job it is to help children. … Some adults work with a child for a short time, supporting them and their families in specific ways.”

If only the Social Work Task Force had known about this when they were trying to come up with a new definition of social work back in June.
