A new report on changing the culture of social work
Social workers need to be supported to change their working culture to focus on wellbeing, early intervention and prevention. This support must occur if social workers are to improve lives of people in adult social care and deliver sector efficiencies, according to a new paper published by Think Local Act Personal (TLAP), in partnership with Skills for Care and Shared Lives Plus.
The report argues that the sector needs to reclaim social work so that it is community -focused and not constrained within a mechanistic case management approach. Such a ‘strengths-based’ approach that uses the skills and talents of people in their own communities, it argues, will lead to improved wellbeing and have a positive impact on the adult social care workforce.
