Survey reveals social workers' poor working conditions‏


A survey has been carried out in the UK relating to social workers' working conditions and job satisfaction. The results appear to be more positive than what BASW new Chief Executive, Hilton Dawson, has found during his listening tour of the UK.

We ask you if you know about similar surveys carried out in other countries. The French Burn Out study is one example.

Thanks to Cristina and Siobhan for this great informative blog! Poor working conditions is unfortunately a reality that we have know for a long time. IFSWeurope is currently working on recommendations for minimum standards including working conditions for social workers in Europe. If all goes well this will be approved in May 2010.
