Here are a few problems Mayday Social Work Consultancy aims to eliminate!
For social workers:
- Social workers are spending approximately 60% of their time on administration tasks and therefore less time on meaningful social work with children and their families.
- Not enough time to spend getting to know the children, get their views, feelings and wishes or to carry out direct with work children but social workers are expected to have captured “the voice of the child” or their work will be judged negatively.
- Difficulty completing work due to high caseload, competing priorities leading to social workers feeling inadequate or labelled ineffective.
- No work life balance due to social workers working excessive hours to meet statutory requirements and keep on top of their workload.
