More than a year since a duty was placed on social workers to identify and act upon suspected cases of radicalisation, there remains uncertainty about the social work role in these cases.

Community Care research carried out last December found a widespread lack of confidence among practitioners in handling these cases. Since then, several court cases have highlighted good and bad practice in this area.

This week a senior Metropolitan Police Officer said as many as 50 families had been involved in care proceedings over fears children could be radicalised.

A year into the duty being in force, how confident are you in handling these cases now? Let us know by completing our survey.

We want to gauge the degree to which identifying and tackling radicalisation has embedded itself in social work practice over the past 12 months, and the level of support you’re getting to get to grips with this emerging issue.

Take our survey.
