Earlier this year, we asked you to let us know what you enjoy about your work as a social work practitioner and you answered in your droves.

Your answers were incredibly inspiring, and it’s wonderful to feel the passion that you all have for your careers.

I enjoy...

“Seeing change achieved and better outcomes for children” Keshia, Halesowen

“Empowering people to build on their strengths” Diane, Rotherham

“Being able to help families to make changes and recognise the strengths they have” Shirley, Bury

“The flexibility of the role, the transferable settings and people skills used. These include whether on the front line operational or in a supportive, administrative, management or other back office environments” Merlyn, London

“The sheer challenge of effectively working with complex cases” Christine, Lancaster

“Visiting people, making the ends of their lives more dignified, promoting independence and building confidence” Kamaljit, Wolverhampton

“Not only making a difference to children's lives but enabling and supporting parents to make sure that they children are happy and safe” Kelly, Manchester

“The stories you hear from the lives of service users” Adam, Stafford

“I love working with people and supporting and empowering them to make positive changes for a healthier, brighter and safer future. I believe it is a privilege to share people’s lives with them, often through the difficulties and troubles.

I love meeting people from all different backgrounds, differing needs and discovering more about them and their journeys and the impact of earlier experiences. I enjoy learning about myself and also how I can help others in the future. I love the challenge, the passion, the diverse journey” John, Croydon
