Residential child care worker resource – by Social Care Wales


Social Care Wales has launched an online resource to support the practice of residential child care workers. It gives child care workers access to essential information, case studies, data and research.

The resource brings together:

  • Information about supporting the health and well-being of children who’ve experienced trauma
  • Information about professional boundaries with real-life examples
  • Advice about how professionals can support care experienced young people to develop essential life skills
  • Useful links that signpost practitioners to more information.


Sue Evans, the Chief Executive, said:

‘The residential child care worker resource will be a place to access authoritative information and good practice across a range of subject areas that these workers will encounter every day.’
