A summative report on the qualitative evaluation on the eleven remodelling social work pilots 2008-11

The social work remodelling project was a pilot programme developed to allow authorities to explore different ways of delivering social work practice. Local authorities were provided with additional resources to attempt to address the deficits they identified in delivering an effective social work offer to children and their families. Authorities were invited to test new approaches to organising and delivering children and family social work so that: the expertise of staff could be used more widely; children’s social work could be delivered as part of integrated services; social workers could spend more time on direct work with clients, contributing to prevention; and bureaucracy could be reduced for social work staff.
