Social Work Values and Ethics

Social work values and ethics underpin Barbara's approach to child care however she acknowledges there are always risks in the field of child protection

Barbara is an experienced, down-to-earth social work manager with a strongly held belief that social work intervention should be brief and community based. Every day her social work values and ethics are tested when new dilemmas are brought to her attention and she has to weigh up the risks of what type of intervention is required. From child protection investigations to supporting young people in care and at home, her decisions have a life-changing impact on the clients she works with through her team. Do you agree with her style of risk management or would you have made other decisions? Check out our social work values page here.
