Student social workers welcome in care homes

Posted on October 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

An internet poll conducted by the English Community Care Association (ECCA) showed that 98.5 per cent of people who voted believed that placements in independent sector care homes should be available to student social workers. The remaining 1.5 per cent did not think that they should be available. A total of 132 took part in the poll which is a relatively low number. ECCA says the lack of engagement in the poll is perhaps indicative of the negativity exhibited by some social workers to the residential care sector.
