Thank you for listening to the What Works for Children’s Social Care podcast - COVID-19 special.
In this episode, Michael Sanders, Chief Executive of What Works for Children’s Social Care, talks to Julia Hassall, the Assistant Director for Children’s Social Care in Rochdale.
Julia discusses how Rochdale’s relational approach to practice guided their response to COVID-19, how they embraced creative solutions - such as recordings of lullabies, direct work through windows, Easter egg deliveries to see difficult to reach families, and weekly Skype discos.
Julia also talks about the importance of ensuring practitioners feel cared for by the organisation they work for, so they in turn can continue to care for the families and children they are working with in a creative and supportive way, and how Rochdale have helped colleagues maintain resilience through coaching sessions.
