In this chapter we will build on some of the themes in Chapter 2 to explore and locate the contemporary role of social work within the UK and its contemporary situation within diverse agencies and multidisciplinary teams. Through a careful exploration of social work agency and institutional models, the reader will build an awareness of the delivery and practical context of contemporary social work practice against a backdrop of austerity and increasing diversification and marketisation within the health and social care sectors.
