Social worker


Social workers can offer a range of support to individual children or to whole families. Services offered could include respite, holiday help, advocacy, befriending, help with behaviour management and money or benefits advice. If a child or their family already has a social worker, it is likely that he or she will be involved in deciding what additional support the child needs at school.
