Focus on Children’s Services and Youth Workers in the North

26th January 2006

On the 26th January Community Care will be running a feature dedicated to those who work with Children’s and Families in the North of England.  This issue will also be distributed at Community Care Live: Children’s & Families exhibition taking place at Manchester International Convention Centre on the 1st February, which we are expecting over 1,000 relevant social care professionals to attend.

The main focus of this feature will be on recruitment and retention issues facing organisations and new initiatives currently being used to attract new professionals. This feature is the perfect opportunity to promote your recruitment brand and vacancies to over 55,455 social care professionals (ABC June 05). 

Amongst the subjects covered:

• An interview with Andrew Webb, the new co-chair of the Association of Directors of Social Services Children and Families Committee.
• Child protection in madressahs (faith schools). This looks at the way councils in the north are working with madressahs to try to guide them on child protection and ensure children’s safety.
