In this final chapter I will revisit the original aims of the book, reviewing key themes and findings from my analysis and highlighting those elements which I regard as useful in contributing to our understanding of the role that risk plays in social work. Following on from my discussion of the implications of the study in the previous chapter, I conclude with some tentative recommendations regarding how social work agencies and practitioners might accommodate the key messages emerging from this analysis so as to enable them to both address their aims and objectives and deal with both contemporary and future challenges in ways which do justice to the actual, rather than idealised, nature and function of social work.
