Abstract

All 15 young people in this sample understood that the role of a social worker in children’s social care services was primarily to protect the safety of children and young people. Most seemed to recognise and value this role in their lives, the lives of their families and other people they knew in care. - This research revealed that children and young people in this sample regarded their social workers as a cause of some frustration as well as a vehicle through which to channel their frustration and anger. - However, in this research the majority (13 out of 15) of the children and young people revealed that not only is it important to feel protected but that they also needed to feel cared about. All 15 of the young people felt that social workers could improve how they engaged with and listened to young people.
