North Tyneside to help government understand children’s social work response to Covid 19

The government has commissioned research to understand how local authorities have worked to keep vulnerable children safe during the pandemic

North Tyneside Council, will work alongside Professor Eileen Munro and Professor Andrew Turnell, both renowned experts in social care, to carry out research into the use of networks around a child – such as extended family members, neighbours and other community members – to help keep them safe when professional support became more restricted.

This will form part of a wider Department for Education funded project to understand how children’s social care teams have responded to the pandemic, capturing lessons learned and sharing best practice.

The council has been selected having received an ‘outstanding’ rating for its children’s services in its last Ofsted report.
