We want to hear from social workers, foster parents and carers about the aspect of your role that you worry most about and why
It’s no secret that the social care sector is under huge pressure and staff are expected to juggle never-ending caseloads.
When the most vulnerable make the news, from people living with severe mental health problems or children who suffer at the hands of violent parents, they will probably be known to the social care system.
Social care professionals, social workers and carers can’t be with service users all the time, so what measures do you put in place for when you’re not there? What do you worry might happen in your absence?
Perhaps it’s the woman with dementia who you worry will accidentally start a fire at home, or maybe it’s the mother who can’t leave her violent partner, or that child with mental health problems who can’t access the care they need to keep them safe?
We want to hear from foster parents, carers, social workers, care workers, occupational therapists and peer support workers about your biggest fears.
