Social work in the UK

Here is another interesting article about social work in the UK. In the UK, this also includes the care and support given to persons with developmental disabilities, but not people working in child services.

The article discusses the fact that a lot of social work is now being transferred to “social health assistants” who do not need the same level of education as social workers. So they do not have the same kind of expertise.

Another issue is the fact that there is such a tight focus on tasks carried out and the time spent – what is referred to the “care management straitjacket” – meaning social workers spend more and more time in front of the computer rather than with the citizens with needs.
