Children's Social Work Matters

Children’s social workers make a positive difference to the lives of hundreds of young people and their families every day.

'Children matter...'  It’s a simple statement, but one that every single children’s social worker in Yorkshire and the Humber region wholeheartedly believes.

Children’s Social Work Matters is a programme that aims to attract and support social workers in addition to improving social work practice and delivery across the Yorkshire and Humber region. All 15 local authorities have come together in a unique way to drive up industry standards and champion the vital role of children’s social work.

Children’s Social Work Matters is also about improving the understanding, image and value of children’s social work as a profession and across our region. Check out the Children's Social Work Matters website to find out how our social workers are helping families, and what jobs are available near you.
