Statement regarding One Stop Social

It has been brought to our attention that there have been some claims about the creation or management of One Stop Social (OSS) to plug an alternative website, which bears a remarkable similarity to our own. We would like to confirm that these claims are false and are potentially being used to plug and market this website using our reputation and connections.


OSS was set up by Matt Hughes as a social work and care professionals forum in 2014, whilst he was managing a Child Protection Team as a way for practitioners to connect and promote quality resources and information.  


We can clarify that the person in question joined the OSS Team in 2018 but subsequently left in August 2019.  As such, and for clarification purposes, this person was not involved in the development of OSS and is no longer attached to the organisation. This person does not represent OSS’s overall social work values, ethics and professional integrity.
