We adhere and follow good practice and procedure at all times.

“Social workers are trained to be critically reflective decision-makers and assessors-of-need. They are also trained to have knowledge of mental health and are experts in mental capacity. We have an understanding and working knowledge of counselling theories, communications theory and skills, mediation, legislation and sociology theories such as Systems Theory, to name just a few of the skills and knowledge a Social Worker has."
