Who Are Social Workers

Social workers are Professionals, trained specifically in Social work disciplines to build partnerships among other professionals working within the field of psychosocial intervention, caregivers and families; collaborating with the community, usually with the goal of creating supportive environments for clients or service users, advocating for adequate service, treatment models and resources; changing social policy to address issues of poverty, employment, housing and social justice; and supporting the development of preventive programmes for the less privilege. Social workers focus on early intervention, treatments, and post treatment with individuals, groups and the general public through education, advocacy and improving access to services, resources and information.
