Supervision Survey

The LSCB would like to thank all those who completed a survey on staff supervision. We received over 400 workforce responses with a balanced response from social care, education and health agencies.

Findings suggest that safeguarding supervision is taking place more frequently than might have been thought, but that there is considerable room for improvement in its quality.

As a result of this survey, the LSCB has agreed a new set of Supervision Core Principles which can be viewed here
