Social workers work with specific groups of clients, including children, the elderly and families in crisis, and help them to solve the problems they’re facing. Generally, social workers specialise in either adult or child social care. Clients may be vulnerable or in difficult situations, so social workers need to be able to work under pressure and understand other people’s viewpoints.
