Wrong Job!

Present regime (Brutal/Bureaucratic):
CYFS/OT employs & directs Social Workers who further direct Public with penalties (e.g. loss of access) for non-compliance.

Result:
* Resistance to imposed regime
* Animosity against The Powers That Be
* Significantly ineffective governance
* Largely ineffective takeup of what might well be good guidance
* Ever more bureaucrats delivering ever less effective policy totally above the comprehension of the governed, and often totally above the comprehension of the Social Worker.
* Social Workers working in such a bureaucracy will inevitably become said Bureaucrats.

 

Envisaged (Gentle/Human):
CYFS/OT (Possibly eliminated so (parent) Ministry) with vastly reduced workload, else re-tasked so it
Governs
Community Agencies
which employ & direct Social Workers who interact with Public
Social Workers in their OWN Communities will care less about their income and more about the welfare of their clients (Children, Youth and their Families)

Result:
Less (and more efficient and effective) Government
Known, local and friendly Social Workers,
giving More honest dialogue
and More immediate and better-informed response,
leading to Closer-tailored, more palatable remedies, thus
Better and quicker outcomes
In clients’ OWN communities
