It’s time to shine a light on the work of New Brunswick Social Workers.
See how New Brunswick Social Workers are making a real difference:
Helping Others, No Matter the Situation
Every day, all across New Brunswick, Social Workers are hard at work protecting those in need and increasing the well-being of New Brunswickers. You’ll find these Social Workers in a variety of settings, ensuring New Brunswickers get to the root cause of their issues and helping them cope with and solve their problems. At the end of the day, social work is more than a job: It’s a way of helping others, often in the face of difficult and stressful situations.
What do Social Workers do, exactly? That’s a hard question to answer since they have a number of skillsets and work in a variety of contexts. But at the most basic level, Social Workers are regulated health professionals who respond to the needs of individuals, families, groups, and communities across New Brunswick. They look at how family, community, legal, social, spiritual, and economic influences impact well-being and work to address any barriers that may exist. At the end of the day, Social Workers identify people who need help and then work with those people to improve their situations.
New Brunswick’s Social Workers help New Brunswickers in more ways than you may realize.
