Essex County Council has launched its new Social Work Promise, which is designed to strengthen social work practice across the county.
It has been developed with input from children and young people, with their insights helping to shape it. The aim of the promise is to strengthen relationships between children, families and social workers. By establishing a framework to measure success, it will also help ensure children and families receive the support they deserve.
The promise sets out eight commitments to every child or young person in Essex with a social worker.
