MP shows support for social workers

Labour MP Sandra Osborne has highlighted the very difficult job undertaken by Social Workers at the present time.

Sandra said: “Recent work undertaken by the British Association of Social Workers shows that many social workers are working in very difficult conditions.

“The information put together by the British Association of Social Workers shows that some Social Workers are being forced out of their jobs due to excessive workload pressures which is very worrying during the current period of austerity.

“Although often criticised Social Work is critical in protecting our citizens and building a successful society.

“Sandra concluded by pledging her support to Social Workers in their work to promote Social Justice and said that she will be carefully monitoring the impact of budget cuts on the level of service which Social Work agencies are able to provide.”
