Adult welfare social services, child and family social work, social work for seniors, disability services, crisis services, and more.

Child and family social work may become necessary when problems arise in family situations. A family may contact a social worker to discuss their circumstances on their own initiative. A relation or someone else who is worried about a child’s wellbeing may also contact a social worker by making a notification/contact or a child welfare notification to social welfare services. Child and family social work provides help to the whole family with the child’s best interests at the core.
