Social Connections Tool
Under 1 minute read
The Social Connections Tool (SCT) is an online questionnaire which explores who is important to a child or a young person (who is or has been in care) and/or who they rely on and in what way.
The questionnaire has been designed as an integral part of Lifelong Links. It has been developed in consultation with young people in care and care leavers, social workers and their managers, family group conference managers and coordinators, and academics.
In addition to being used as part of Lifelong Links, the SCT is also intended to be used as a social work tool for any child in care. The SCT helps social workers and Lifelong Links coordinators explore, from the child’s perspective, who is important to them, the extent of their support network and in what ways members of their network are helping or may help them.
If your local authority would be interested in using the Social Connections Tool then please get in touch with Lucy Hutchinson firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the options.
