With more and more people losing their care benefits and therefore their care packages there won't be as much demand for social workers so it is only a matter of time until the government start picking them off and reducing the staffing numbers.

Social workers think that their jobs are so secure, but disability is slowly being eradicated and mental health is being played down as if it was nothing.

If social workers value their jobs then it's about time that they started supporting disabled and mentally ill people before it is too late for them too, as there would be so many redundancies, there could be 100 social workers all fighting over one or two job vacancies in the private sector. Everything is being privatised.

I'm sure someone else could probably word this better, but I hope you understand where I'm coming form.....but then I'm probably thinking too far into the future. Or has anyone already experienced this scenario?
