Volunteers with no experience of social work are successfully being used in a groundbreaking scheme to help the families of children on the at-risk register.
Two trials conducted over the past three years have led to the removal from the register of all the children involved, The Times has learnt. Crucially, the children have remained off the register. Nationally, two thirds of children who are taken off it are put back on again.
Amateurs do better than trained professionals, who would have thought it?
Of course, the amateurs are simply getting on with things rather than going to planning meetings on outreach projects to the excluded disabled minorty ethnic people of alternative gender assignation meetings…..hmmm, I wonder, could that be the reason?
