Abstract

At the time of writing social work, particularly in the local authority context, is in a sorry state. Social workers are constantly under attack, especially in the area of child abuse. Many local authorities are financially bankrupt and the rest are struggling with inadequate resources. This has often led to a demoralised, depleted and defeated workforce trying to provide a service from behind doors which are almost perpetually closed — a scene reminiscent of the Alamo, but not that envisaged at the birth of the new Seebohm Departments nearly twenty years ago.
