Accessible language for social workers

Community Care highlights the need for social workers and health and social care professionals to be mindful of the language they use when speaking with families and children. Key suggestions include: referring to family members by their names; avoiding using LAC when referring to a looked after child, or FC when talking about a foster carer; referring to where a child lives as their home, rather than a placement or unit; and considering the language used when compiling reports or during meetings, as parents often do not have experience of specialist terms and acronyms.
