Social workers and children’s services

In events, individuals, issues, social groups on December 3, 2008 at 6:04 am

Following the horrific Baby P story, the papers have been full of vitriolic attacks on social workers in Haringey (and in general). Here’s a taste of some of the ways in which this social group and individuals such as Sharon Shoesmith have been represented comments on The Sun’s message boards.

Sun letters and texts

Daily Mirror – view from a social worker

Daily Mail – “bungling social workers put children at risk”

Daily Mail – social workers criticised for “flimsy abuse claim”

You can’t win with the Daily Mail, can you?

As an ENGA1 mode exercise, you might find the comparisons between Sun letters and text messages useful too.
