Campaign: To encourage social workers to listen more to the concerns of their clients

I’ve had two bad experiences with social workers.

 

The first was when I was a teenager and I had to be taken into foster care.

 

Then, when I was a mother myself, there was the possibility that my own children might have to be taken into care (in the end, that didn’t happen).

 

On both occasions I felt the social workers didn’t listen properly to what I had to say.

 

Fixers has helped me make a film to get across the message that “Listening Is the Key”.

 

I’ve shown it to some trainee social workers and I think it gave them a different view of things. I hope they’ll remember the message as they go forward with their careers.

I would like to thank the following people for helping me with this fix:
