One in 10 paid staff in England work with children, according to a new report from the Employers’ Organisation for Local Government.
The survey finds that more than four million people in England work with children, or support those working with children, out of a civilian workforce of 25 million. This includes around 2.4 million paid staff and 1.8 million unpaid staff and volunteers.
The report, People Working with Children, comes at a time when Children’s Services are being brought together under the Department for Education and Science (DfES).
