“We are entering what feels like a pivotal time for social work practice. We have a prime minister who is taking an active interest in our profession. Whether you agree with his views or not, he appears to have a genuine interest in addressing the poor life chances afforded to those young people who enter our care system. We also have a public that, thanks to blanket news coverage this week, is becoming aware of the difficulties we face in having to cope with caseloads that are too high”.
An eminently sensible piece of writing. Thank you so much to Social Work Tutor.
