Social Work 

Our Services



The Social Work Profession aims to "...promote or restore a mutually beneficial interaction between individuals as well as between individuals and society in order to improve the quality of life, by aiding persons in receipt of such services to understand, resolve and prevent personal, interpersonal, family or social problems" (Social Work Act, 2003).

Social Work interventions are based on values that include respect for the equality, worth and dignity of all people. Social Work, generally, addresses the barriers, inequalities and injustices that exist in society, responds to crises as well as to everyday personal and social problems and utilises a variety of skills, techniques and activities consistent with its holistic focus on persons and their environments.
Social Work is an Allied Health Profession within different health settings.  Social workers are dedicated to enhancing human capacity to solve complex social problems by focusing on the strengths of individuals, families and communities.  They assist people in managing their daily lives, coping with issues, dealing with relationships, and solving personal and family problems.  The main objective of Social Work is to empower individuals to reach their full potential and to achieve good quality lives within our society.
