Social Workers To Face Sanctions

Social Workers To Face Sanctions


Prime Minister will announce consultation on whether criminal charge for wilful neglect should be extended across children’s social care…


Potential punishment for social workers who breach either duty if they were brought into force could include existing practitioner sanctions (such as through the profession’s regulator, the Health and Care Professions Council), additional processes involving the Disclosure and Barring Service, or criminal sanctions at individual and organisational levels.

The maximum sentences for criminal sanctions would vary in severity, but for both individuals and organisation could involve fines, with imprisonment an option for individuals. Organisations could also be found criminally liable without a specific corporate criminal offence.
