Code: SC/21/0214 'The Record Business' effective writing and recording in Children's and Adult Social Care

'Any one who wishes to become a good writer should endeavour, before he allows himself to be tempted by the more showy qualities, to be direct, simple, brief, vigorous, and lucid' (HF Fowler and FG Fowler, The King's English, 1906)

Why is this subject important? It's quite difficult to write simply. All too often social care report writing lacks structure and is unclear, unfocused and repetitive. This means the message and impact are weakened or lost. Whether we are writing for children and families, service users, other professionals, the court or others we need to do so in a clear, concise, relevant and meaningful way. And that means taking the reader (whoever they may be) with us every step of the way. We simply need to convince them that we know what we are talking about and are worth listening to.

Reports, assessments, minutes and plans will be read, understood and followed if they are easy to read, easy to understand and easy to follow. We will apply our approach of facts-analysis-judgements. Indeed, research, inspections, serious case reviews and inquiries have all raised concerns that social work recording and reporting often lacks analysis and misses the child or service user's voice (or their voice is 'professionalised').

All too frequently, writing is mainly narrative and descriptive. There is a lot of information and a lot of facts. But we need to make sense of those facts and that information. What do they tell us? Why do they tell us that? What should we do as a consequence of that? We'll show you how to make sense of it all. We'll make analysis easy! Honest.
