I am in desperate need of help. I have tried to do it on my own but I am running out of time. My SSW doesn't even understand the question I'm on now. It's 5.6 understanding contexts. I have only two weeks to finish it now and I really need to have a look at some examples of answers to the remaining questions so I have an idea of what is expected of me. If anyone can show me some examples or help in any way, I will be extremely thankful. I promise I won't copy your answers, I just need an example to get myself going.

Good luck, I hope someone helps you. I hated doing this when I started fostering, a waste of time and nothing to do with how well you care for a child. Utter bollocks, I feel your pain. I find SWs focus on these things and miss the glaring examples of bad care in the children's lives while they are in the care system, not with the parents that let them down but with the carers and services that often fail these children. Yet another demand made of us while neither we nor the children we care for can expect anything from the SWs.

Hi Kahuna - I too have also just started my CWDC course and I'm finding it difficult to know what to put. Would it be possible for you to forward me your electronic copy just to see what I should be putting? I would really appreciate this. smile

hi, I have just started to look at my cwdc workbook, and it looks complicated, then I found your blog saying that you would be able to send a copy of your completed workbook to another desperate user, and I just wondered if you would be very kind as to send me a copy of your completed workbook also as I am also in desperate need of assistance, if you would be able to do this for me I would very much appreciate it. my e-mail address is
kind regards

I've been trying to complete the CWDC with 3 kids in tow! I have nightmares about it. I've had no social worker more or less since I started, so haven't been able to turn to anyone. I've had a good stab at it (completed nearly 4 standards) but unsure if I am on the right track with a lot of the questions. Some of the questions are worded like there could be one or more meanings to them. I would love to see a copy of yours if you wouldn't mind, just to see mainly if I'm on the right track.
Many thanks..............

Hi all, its great to be able to get advice from people with more experience and one day you never know I’ll hopefully be able to help someone back:-) We have been approved as FC in July 2013 and are awaiting a long term placement, since then I have been plodding through as much of the CWPC as I can whilst I’ve got some time, but have got to the stage that I may of gone of track and missed the main points of what they are looking for despite hours of reading the help notes, please please could some one be so kind in emailing me a copy of a completed one so that I can double check that I’ve included the main points!!! Thanks for any help I receive in advance.
