Social Worker

This title can only be granted to someone by the Health and Care Professional Council (HCPC), following attainment of specific qualification. Social workers assist members of the community through difficult transitions, changes, traumas or other struggles, by providing the necessary advice, support and legal rights. Many social workers are employed by the local authorities, but there is a growing sector for them in the NHS or private sectors.

Support Worker

Support work is broad, but generally revolves around helping people do things for themselves rather than doing it for them. It could mean overseeing someone in their home, assisting them with everyday tasks such as transport, shopping or visiting doctors. It could even be a community endeavour such as providing sports or drama activities. The kinds of people who require support workers are often recovering from or experiencing illness, substance addiction, have mental conditions, or grapple with other impeding circumstances.
