Greens' Success in Children's Social Care

For the past three years, Green Party councillors have proposed amendments to the Council's budget plans which would see more money put into Child Social Care. We know that austerity has had an impact on the Council's finances but there has also been intense pressure on child and adult social care with rising demand outstripping the revenue devoted to it.

Finally, the Council have listened to Green Party calls for more money and there will be soon be more social workers to deal with the heavy, and increasing, workload.
