There are a number of reasons why someone might consider social work jobs that involve working with children. Being able to keep a family together or a child safe can be a truly wonderful thing. Working with children in the social care system is a varied role and each day will bring with it its own unique set of challenges, with families facing a range of difficulties from drug and alcohol misuse to domestic violence, neglect and even mental health issues. Here, we look at some of the different social care roles you could undertake.

Social Care Roles
