7 Conclusion

In this course, you have thought about the context of doing social work, with particular regard to working in the Welsh context. While always being aware that we are working with unique individuals, it is essential that social workers take account of the bigger social picture and understand the social, cultural and political influences that affect the people we work with. You have looked at the importance of legislation and social policy for social work in Wales, as well as thinking about the values and attitudes that underpin social work practice.
