I feel as though there are a lot of false information in the press and in general knowledge about child protection social workers so, ask me anything!

Hello. As my name suggests, I'm a kinship care grandmother. Has this form of care increased in recent years, and is it recognised by society eg schools, doctors, etc as differing from foster care?
Do kinship care teams liaise with schools in any way to ensure that grandparents are not at a disadvantage when it comes to the curriculum and possible digital exclusion?

How do you feel when you see children being abused and murdered by their parents/carers and then hear about the amount of social work involvement that they have had that did nothing? Do you feel guilty? Do you put it down to poor social workers?

how many years post qualifying are the most experienced members of your team?
How many month/years roughly do people stay in your team?
how many agency staff do you have in comparison to permanent staff?
if you have asye staff how well do you feel they are supervised?

When you get called, do you feel the person has got it right most of the time? Is there usually cause for concern or do you find you get called a lot of the time for things are aren't causes for concern?
And how do you grade the risk? Low, medium, high.. what would these entail?

Under what sort of conditions do you get called/step in? I feel this "child protection" phrase is so generic I just don't understand it. On here you see people recommending to posters that social services be called because the children are experiencing abuse if their parents fight and then other people on here saying that they can't get social services to care that their physically abusive ex wants 50% custody. It's very confusing to me.
