What makes a good social worker?

Children and young people value a good relationship with their social worker.  They want the worker to spend time just with them and for the worker to get to know them.  They see the social worker as important to their safety and in resolving issues.

The What makes a good social worker? fact sheet combines interviews from several sources with South Australian children and young people to answer this question.
