What makes a good social worker? by OP, aged 13

3rd September, 2021

Thank you OP, for this wonderful poem about what makes a good social worker.

What makes a good social worker?

One who listens,
One who is true,
One who can make decisions,
From the old to the new.

One who makes sure you're safe,
When you move to a different place,
One who can be happy to support,
For not only the child but the foster carer too.

One who respects,
One who protects,
This neglected child,
Trying to make her smile.

One who has a sense of humour,
When one is upset,
One who is kind to her,
And just doesn’t forget.

One who is resourceful,
And has lots of ideas,
One who is practical,
And wipes away her tears.

One that shows up,
Not letting her down,
One who is consistent,
Always around.

One who keeps in touch,
When one is worried or scared,
One who is good at communicating,
And is always prepared.

These are the qualities of a brilliant social worker.
