A social worker will be appointed to you when you come into care


A social worker will:

  • explain what's happening to you and why

  • be your first point of contact for help and advice
  • help you resolve problems
  • attend your Looked After Child review
  • meet with you at least every 6 weeks

Dorset social workers promise to be fun, friendly, tell the truth and keep their promises
