Written answers (Question to Children)

Further to my response to the Deputy of 6 March 2014, I am advised by the Child and Family Agency that, since its establishment on 1 January 2014, 23 social workers have commenced employment. A further 13 are due to commence employment during March and April 2014 and discussions are ongoing with other candidates to agree starting dates for other approved positions.
