The purpose of the report is to share findings from a small-scale exploratory research study, conducted by a group of practitioners who participated in a Facilitated Practice-based Research project. The aim of the research was to understand how partner professional e.g. from health, mental health, education, police, housing, charities etc. perceive and experience safeguarding when working with social workers. A qualitative survey was distributed across the Northeast region with all partner professionals invited to participate, who had experience of working with any Local Authority in the NESWA partnership. Each survey consisted of five open-ended questions giving participants the opportunity to explain their responses, and a total of 67 responses were received – of these 33 worked with adults and 34 with children.
