Not Doomed Yet-Campaign For Social Work

EDM number 81 in 2010-12, proposed by Lindsay Hoyle on 26/05/2010.
Categorised under the topics of Community care and Health staff and professions.

That this House welcomes Not Doomed Yet - the campaign for social work, instigated by the British Association of Social Workers in response to a suggestion by the BBC PM presenter Eddie Mair that children who need to be protected by social workers may be doomed because of pressures on costs; recognises the critical role of social work in protecting, supporting and empowering children and adults made vulnerable by disability, old age, ill health and personal circumstances; acknowledges research which demonstrates a reduction in child deaths over 32 years through effective social work practice; and urges the Government to give priority to investing in social work, even at a time of public expenditure cuts, so that no-one in the UK can ever be written off as doomed.

This motion has been signed by a total of 27 MPs, 3 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
