An update from Community Care on its ‘Stand Up Now for Social Work’ campaign (covered by Journalism.co.uk last month): the RBI title’s efforts have been picked up by Take A Break magazine.
The campaign started by drawing attention to the shortlisting of the Sun’s Baby P campaign for the British Press Awards.
TAB has launched its own campaign, ‘Thank God for Social Workers’, as a follow-up. Unfortunately, the mag’s article on the new initiative isn’t online, but Community Care deputy editor Emma Maier tells Journalism.co.uk that TAB is giving away 500 campaign badges and has also criticised the Sun’s ‘name and shame approach’.
TAB editor John Dale told Maier in her report on the development that the title is looking for more stories from social workers, who would have their details protected, and is keen to run more articles on the issue.
