For Child Care Social Work Staff

This is in relation to the ongoing Independent Review of Children’s Social Care in Northern Ireland being undertaken by Professor Ray Jones.

NIPSA as the leading Trade Union for Social Work staff has agreed to organise meetings in association with Professor Ray Jones to enable members to have their say in regards to the ongoing Independent Review and hear his observations to date.

Details of the Terms of Reference for this Review are available here.

NIPSA members are acutely aware of the difficulties they currently face around the practicalities of working within an understaffed and underfunded environment with little recognition or reward for the situations they face on a daily basis.

While NIPSA continues to campaign for Pay Terms and Conditions and appropriate resources such as Safe Staffing Legislation and Mileage reimbursement NIPSA would encourage all members to take up this opportunity to express what you see are the key issues in Children’s Social Care.

NIPSA would ask all members working within the field of Children’s Social Care to participate in the zoom meetings with Professor Jones to ensure he is able to identify the relevant detail to assist him develop his Independent review informed by those working in the field.
