WWCSC are conducting a randomised controlled trial across 8 Local Authority sites to test the effectiveness of a Symbolic Awards intervention delivered to social workers. The intervention will involve the sending of messages of gratitude coming from beneficiaries (i.e. care leavers) to social workers to increase their subjective well-being, motivation and perceived social worth, as well as reduce burnout. This project is part of the Happier, Healthier Professionals research programme.
