The #big listen is a piece of research that is being carried out with children’s social workers and managers in London and the South East. It aims to help improve the working environment for people working in Children’s Services. This survey is part of the project (alongside focus groups and other activity).  The research is funded by Local Authorities and Children’s Trusts in both regions.  
The information collated will be anonymised and not attributed to any individual.  None of the questions asked are mandatory, so if you don’t want to answer a question move on to the next.
Who is the survey for?
We want to hear from a wide range of staff including: local authority social workers, social work managers, social work students, AYSE social workers,  agency social workers and managers.
How to answer the questions
Please answer the questions based on experience of your current job, agency assignment or placement. If you are not currently working or on placement please base your answer on your last workplace.
How does the survey work?
The questions you are asked will depend on the responses provided, so for example agency social worker will be asked different questions to social workers employed directly by a Local Authority.
What do we plan to do with the information collected?
The information collected will be used by the 19 Local Authorities in the South East and the 33 London Local Authorities to develop a deeper understanding of how they can improve the workplace for children’s social workers.
We aim to complete the research and report back in Spring 2023.
