Should social workers be expected to ‘do it all’?

Social workers in England have more responsibility and a wider remit than many of their continental European counterparts, according to a new report published by the Thomas Coram Research Unit at the Institute of Education, and funded by the Nuffield Foundation.

Social workers in England have responsibility for all aspects of case management and direct contact with families, but in much of continental Europe these responsibilities are split between several different highly-trained professionals.
