Achieving for Children

Frontline social worker on TV and radio

On Tuesday 8 January 2019 the government announced funding for 900 places on the Frontline children’s social work training programme up to 2021. The social work charity has secured £45 million in funding as it recruits growing numbers of trainees to the social work profession, helping to transform the lives of vulnerable children and families.

Achieving for Children has had several Frontline social workers. One, Sophie Buckler, appeared on BBC TV and radio to talk about her experience and the positive impact of having a supportive manager and team.
