NB: While it is preferable, it is not mandatory to record that they are the client’s social worker.  At a minimum we expect that they would record the team that the client is dealing with.  Some workers may have very low numbers (such as out of hours workers) and this will distort the average figure.

The figures produced are based on a snapshot date of 1 January:
 
Year                                             2010     2011     2012     2013     2014
Q1 – average caseload                     14         15         17         18         17
Q2 – highest caseload                       65         66         77         101       54

Q3 There are no targets set.
