Named Social Worker
The Department of Health initiated the Named Social Worker programme in order to build an understanding of how having a named social worker can contribute to individuals with learning disabilities, autism or mental health needs achieving better outcomes; specifically that they and their family are in control of decisions about their own future, and are supported to live with the dignity and independence which we all strive for. This programme is about trying something different, piloting new ideas and generating early and indicative evidence as to their impact.
