All In a Day's Work?

As if social workers did not have enough today with the PLO in force from tomorrow here is an extract from the General Social Care Council's Social Work at its best: The roles and tasks of social workers .

Social work roles require a wide range of tasks to be performed. These can
include acting as broker to obtain the support people want through creative
use of all available resources; enhancing parenting and supporting the
physical, intellectual and emotional development of children and young people who need help, in line with the Children’s Plan; helping disadvantaged people of all ages improve their health and wellbeing; arranging good-quality alternative care for children whose parents cannot care for them, and for adults who can no longer manage in their own homes; and aiding people in poverty to improve their financial position, informing them about their entitlements, and supporting them to access training, work opportunities and benefits.
