How can we help you...

Social Work

The aim of Social Work is to promote social welfare and to support the informal care provided by families, neighbours and the community in general. Social Work is responsible for the provision of a wide range of services and
resources to many people. These services are provided in public offices, their own homes, in day centres or in residential establishments. We have a duty to protect vulnerable people from abuse or neglect and to promote voluntary and
 self-help activities. We provide a service to a wide range of people:

Some services are free while for others there may be a charge depending on your particular circumstances. Information on our  Social Work Charging Policy   is available on this site. Health services, carers, voluntary organisations, the private sector and volunteers all complement the work which is carried out by Social Work.

You will find more information on the services we provide to the public in the A-Z Homepage.

If you would like to get in touch with us, please call, write or email us by using the details below.

For information on services, advice, practical support and counselling please contact the Social Work Duty Team, telephone 01224 522055.
