Call for evidence for the Munro review of child protection

Information on Professor Munro's call for evidence and examples of good practice for her review of children's social work.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

Starting today, Professor Munro would like to hear evidence for her review of children’s social work.

The wide-ranging review was announced last month with the aim to remove barriers and bureaucracy so that social workers can get more face-to-face time with children and families.

As part of the review, Professor Munro wants to hear about new and innovative examples of good practice, to understand how they were made possible and what obstacles had to be overcome.

Professor Munro is due to submit her final report in April 2011, an interim report in January 2011, and an initial report in September 2010.
