Named Social Worker
Having a named social worker can contribute to people achieving better outcomes. A 2018 project looked at how people with learning disabilities, autism or mental health needs – and their families – can be in control of decisions about their own future, and are supported to live with the dignity and independence which we all strive for. Now, the initiative of having a named social worker is being extended to other people who draw on care and support.
