Social workers in the UK practise in a wide variety of settings with children, young people and their families but children are the unifying centre that all social workers have in common in their work, whether they work in statutory or voluntary agencies such as family support, education units, child protection, fostering and adoption, leaving care or youth offending. In all these agencies they meet and talk with children and young people, their parents and carers and a variety of other workers and professionals, but sometimes, through dealing with the multiple demands of their work and the range of other professionals, the child him or herself may get lost.
