Webinar recording: A radical new approach to children's social care

This webinar, hosted by SCIE on 15 January 2020, looked at empowering social workers and placing relationships at the heart of children's practice. Learn about how a change in ethos and structure of a local authority could increase the time social workers spend with families by up to 60 per cent.

Buurtzorg is a Dutch home care provider that has developed high degrees of autonomy to self-managed teams of nurses. After a group of children's social workers and system leaders saw Buurtzorg, they asked: what would a local authority look like if it were to enable and empower social workers to do their best work with children and families?
