CHSCB Staff Survey

If you have not already done so, we would like to encourage all front-line staff and first-line managers who work with children and young people to take part in the CHSCB Staff Survey. Each year, the CHSCB issues a staff survey to help inform the key priorities for safeguarding children and young people across the City of London and Hackney.

This year, we would like to hear from you to help measure confidence in practice, learning from case reviews and knowledge of local priorities. 

The survey is confidential and should take five to ten minutes to complete. Thank you for your cooperation!
