Community Care’s Retention Risk Tool

15:30 - 16:30

In this session Community Care will present its work with the University of the West of England to develop a diagnostic tool focused on the retention of social workers. The tool helps local authorities understand their performance against 24 key indicators which research tells us are the most important influences when social workers decide whether to stay or leave their job. Attend this session to:

  • Learn about the most recent UK and international research on social worker retention
  • Hear from councils that have been using the tool about how it has supported and changed their approach to social worker retention
  • Understand why Community Care is focusing on the retention of social workers as one of the two key issues facing the sector
