Director hits out at survey time limits

A children’s social care leader has hit out at the government after it only allowed six weeks for responses to an in-depth questionnaire that feeds into its joint policy review on children and young people.

Andrew Webb, co-chair of the Association of Directors of Social Services children and families committee, said the six-week period – including the August holiday period – was not long enough to properly answer the 37 questions.

Responses to the 37 questions from the Department for Education and Skills and the Treasury will inform the joint policy review on children and young people and, consequently, next year’s comprehensive spending review.
