    Aw best of luck! you could also mention that sometimes people need help with ss issues but ss are unable to help as their main problems may relate to alcohol/drugs etc so they can't be supported until they detox but may have urgent issues.

    Aw, if they're like the interviewees for nursing they'll try to put you at ease. It might be worth having a look at the regulators (hcpc I think?)

    Have a look at community care, there is quite a lot of current SW news and issues on there. I remember talking to a SW recently and they say an issue was maintaining a Social Work identity in a multi disciplinary team - as these are becoming more common in health and mental health settings.

    Funding is usually one of the main issues.

    Im struggling to, I have a current themes assignment. Im thinking about going with Direct work with children as its still being commissioned out to not profit organisations when serious case review's state that SW's should be having more contact with children. To my knowledge this is not happening as much as it should be.

    The issues may vary depending on the area you work in.

    Social work within voluntary or charitable organisations may have issues with funding. In a statutory setting, it could be excessive case loads.

    As others have said, Community Care is a good place to start, as is BASW (http://www.basw.co.uk)

    the fact that the government is failing to reverse austerity effects and is making new plans that will reduce services further. For example, proposing to remove women's refuges from the welfare system, putting the lives of women and children at risk
