Social work is a varied role with the end goal to always improve people’s lives. Social workers help individuals by supporting them with their care needs and by protecting their human rights and well-being.
Social work is covered by a number of teams within adult social care at Milton Keynes, please see details below.
Social Work Roles within Adult Social Care
Mental Health and Autism Team
Social care workers in this team work directly with people who have a diagnosed mental health condition and or autistic spectrum condition. We practice from a strengths perspective with the overarching aim of helping people live a good and meaningful life. Our duties and responsibilities under the Care Act 2014, Autism Act 2009, the Mental Capacity Act 2007, and the Mental Health Act 1983 shape the work that we do with adults and their carers.
