Social workers to get more rewards

2nd December 2009

Pay will be also be improved for the most experienced front-line staff after the government accepted proposals from its social work task force, set up last year following the death of Baby P. Announcing the reforms, children’s secretary Ed Balls said he hoped "something good" would come out of the case and lead to the best standards of social work consistently across the country.
