Young people tell social workers ‘Why You’re Important to Me’

The popular video Why You’re Important to Me, formerly available only on DVD, is now on YouTube.  This fun animation reveals the feelings young people in care have about their social workers based on interviews collected as part of the Guardian’s inquiry Quality Contact between Children and Young People and their Workers in 2009.


Check out the Why You’re Important to Me resources page for other videos and printed materials that can be used along with Why You’re Important to Me for training or self education.
