Projects include Schwartz Rounds and Change Projects

Yesterday, the What Works Centre for Children’s Social Care published its first research protocols, outlining the plans for all projects before work begins.

The CASCADE led projects include Schwartz Rounds, which tests the use of a structured forum for discussing the emotional and social aspects of children’s social work to improve workforce well-being.  A number of protocols have also been released for our Change Projects, where we are working with local authorities on two project strands;

  • Placing social workers in schools to reduce the need for statutory social work intervention
  • Giving social workers the freedom to use budgets in creative ways to help children safely remain at home

You can download each of the project protocols on the What Works Centre for Children’s Social Care research projects page.
