0:08 Every day as an independent social worker is varied.
0:11 Sometimes I can be with the family in their home doing an assessment.
0:15 Sometimes working online.
0:17 Care and support planning.
0:20 We can get referrals from local authorities.
0:23 Healthboards as well,
0:24 courts, solicitors.
0:26 I go out usually and assess clients,
0:30 either adults or children.
0:34 Cathie interviewed quite a few individuals and social workers
0:38 and decided that Mary and I were
0:41 the best fit with Cathie really.
0:44 And as a team,
0:45 I think she made the right decision.
0:47 We are a great team together and I love working with them.
0:50 Mary brings a really, really creative approach
0:53 to working with young people.
0:54 She's very good at working with children
0:58 and I'm always in awe of what she does.
1:01 And Rachel has a very, very strong sense of
1:06 getting things
1:07 absolutely right
1:09 for the people she's working with.
1:13 I think we're known as sort of experts in the field,
1:16 which I could sort of shy away from.
1:18 I'm not really an expert, I'm just a social worker
1:20 who knows the law and knows how to write assessments.
1:23 But I think it's
1:24 passionate about what we stand for
1:27 and what we try and educate
1:30 other professionals and tribunal judges.
1:33 It's being open and being honest
1:35 and taking action on what you've learned
1:37 and just working with the public and looking after your team.
1:41 And yeah,
1:41 there's a big wider picture to that really.
1:44 I think that's a lot of what the three of us do.
