Team Pavilion: Walking in the Shoes of our Customers
Child Poverty in the United Kingdom part two
Routes out of poverty
There are many ways in which support can be provided, but in the long term, there really is only one route out of poverty. Society needs to commit to ending child and food poverty. This change needs to be championed by politicians and on the ground, in towns and cities. Child poverty is not inevitable and the historical precedence is that child poverty levels in the UK have been significantly lower than they are today.
Child Poverty in the United Kingdom
Poverty is something that has followed society around for years. With the arrival of the global pandemic known as COVID-19, the situation has moved from bad to worse. We are now living in a country that many believe is equivalent to that which was seen in the 1900s, with regards to poverty.
Adult Social Care
Enabling change through conversation at the ADASS Spring Conference
The annual ADASS Spring Conference is a key event in the diary. In the past, it has been a chance for Directors of adult social care to get together in Yarnfield and discuss the pressing issues of the day. This year, as with last year, the conference was required to move from a physical to a virtual presence. Regardless of whether attendance was possible in person or virtually, the desire to discuss and enable change was still the same.

Walk in the shoes of our customers
Today marks the start of the road to our 30th year as an organisation. It is a road that has no end, one that continues forward into the night, adding twists and turns as it goes. Since day one we have focused on what should be at the core of every business in the country, and that is our customers. Without them, we would be nowhere. We are therefore starting today, a 60-day challenge in order to celebrate our customers and the difference in which they make to the lives of everyone across the UK.
Who Am I? Ben Best

The hidden cost of returning to school
Children will soon be heading back to the classroom. This is against a backdrop of exam controversy, six months away from teaching and months’ isolation. It will reveal a raft of changes in each child, ranging from anxiety to being behind in subject knowledge and what most are now worried about, abuse. With the return to school looming in the distance, teachers, social workers and healthcare professionals are bracing themselves for what could be found.
