What children tell us about their social workers I love my social worker because she listens to me and she is very nice (MCP, 10) "My social worker can see from my face if I am sad/ unhappy because she knows me well." (MCP, 11)

"I like it when my social worker makes me laugh and tells me a good joke" (MCP, 11) "My social worker tries to make me happy and safe and puts me and my sister before my parents" (MCP, 11)

"My social worker changed everything for me by helping my Gran" (MCP, 10) Websites: www.cypcs.org.uk www.togetherscotland.org.uk Follow us on Twitter! @cypcs @together_sacr Whats happening in Scotland?

Making progress but are childrens rights still often out of reach? Websites: www.cypcs.org.uk www.togetherscotland.org.uk Follow us on Twitter! @cypcs @together_sacr Its about relationships! "A social worker should be a good listener "It is good if I have time to get to know my social worker, when I can trust my social worker and they stay with me for a long time"

"I feel empowered when I know what is going on with my social worker and if I feel I can ask them questions" "Please try to keep social workers with children as long as possible. You cannot build trusting relationships if you know they will be leaving you again soon" "I like when my social worker sees me without other adults there" "My social worker makes me laugh when I am upset" Websites: www.cypcs.org.uk www.togetherscotland.org.uk Follow us on Twitter! @cypcs @together_sacr

Website: www.togetherscotland.org.uk Follow us on Twitter! @together_sacr And its about recognition! Social workers sometimes make your life better by helping and making hard choices." (MCP, 11) "Sometimes my social worker needs to be strong as they have to make difficult decisions some people may not like or understand" (MCP, 11)
