Dear Brent Borough Council,

I am attempting to make an assessment of the impact of the IR35 changes that were made by the government in April as they impact upon the children’s services social worker workforce. I have data from Statistics: Children's social work workforce SFR08/2017 which gives me data for LAs as at September 30th last year.

Please advise the percentage of children’s services social workers as at the date at which you have the most recent information (indicating the date of course) who were directly employed by your Local Authority; employed on an agency basis; and the percentage of posts that were vacant.

Please also indicate any other factor that may explain variation in the balance between agency social workers and those that are directly employed such as a blanket policy change concerning agency staff.

Yours faithfully,

Loredana Grigore
