    I do more admin now than ever before but not as a result of back-office cuts – it’s been as a result of the increased admin associated with risk assessment tools and report templates, use of which is part of my social work task.

    Isn’t it a mark of how dedicated social workers are that only 34% are considering leaving their jobs despite such high percentages feeling the impact of cuts through unmanageable workloads or perceiving there to be risk to life?
