  9. Half of social workers recruited in 2017 leave

    Local Democracy Reporting Service

    Almost half the number of social workers that Conservative-controlled Northamptonshire County Council recruited last year have already left their jobs.

    During an update on Ofsted's latest findings on children's services in the county at a meeting of the children, learning and communities scrutiny committee, councillors were told the authority had hired 172 social workers last year, but that 82 had already left.

    County Hall

    Cabinet member for children, families and education, Councillor Victoria Perry, said: "Our workers are not badly paid compared to other places, but it's the working environment that is causing them to leave.

    "We are looking at ways in which to work on that. You don't go into social working for the money, you do it for the love it."

    Councillors were told that there are around 400 social worker posts and the current vacancy rate is 23%.

    Science correspondent

    Fitness

    The idea of this new project is to get whole families to exercise together.
