Following on from last week’s post noting that Bristol City Council is advertising for a new arts boss (“helping grow Bristol’s headline artists of tomorrow“) for ten grand more than the salary offered to social workers overseeing foster care, with somewhat accidental synchronicity this Tuesday the Beeb started screening Protecting Our Children, a new series following social workers around Bristol.
The first episode – Knowle West was it? – was pretty hard viewing. Bristol 24-7 has a guest post by one of the social workers who appears in the programme.
Whatever your feelings about social workers, it is certainly interesting to see how they work.
