What are some of the matters pertaining to Singapores social work field What are social workers in Singapore expected to do challenges faced by them and how they achieve work-life balance I am glad that the visits to Thye Hua Kwan Family Service Centre THK FSC MacPherson and WINGS Counselling Centre WCC have answered to these queries and allowed me to gain a deeper insight into the social work sphereOn several occasions it was mentioned and highlighted that inter-agency cooperation is vital in the social service sector For instance WCC would coordinate their services with other agencies such as referring cases to FSCs for services that are out of their provided expertise and Ministry of Social and Family Development and Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore coordinated efforts in developing a Information and Communication Technologies plan for effective service delivery in the social service sector IDA 2013 I agree on the underscored statement because all efforts will be effectively and efficiently coordinated to address peoples needs as I believe that no one agency can singlehandedly do it all by themselves Likewise I suppose the practice of coordinating efforts apply to social workers as well where the code of professional ethics for social workers SASW 2004 p 4 states that social workers should cooperate among various disciplines for effective service provision due to individuals specific competence This practice is essential because social workers can tap on the strengths of other disciplines and even within their own agency to aid the client As I think social workers are not super heroes who can work out all the problems presented so for clients benefits and for their needs to be met proficiently and promptly different skills from various professions must be pulled together Following on even though the visits did not truly focus on the current trending issues such as the silver and migrant population but they concentrated on youth issue which is much closer to my heart
