The role of a social worker depends on the type of social work that they practise. Those who work in children’s services seek to support children and families, protect children from harm, and promote their welfare. They will work with individuals, particularly the parents and the child. They will also work with the wider family and support network.
Social workers work for local authorities and health agencies including the NHS. They may also work for charities and private businesses.
