Community and Social Service


Social work is a professional and academic discipline that seeks to improve the quality of life and wellbeing of an individual, group, or community of people by intervening through research, policy, community organizing, direct practice, and teaching on behalf of those afflicted with poverty or any real or perceived social injustices and violations of their human rights.
Doing social work would require one to be genuine, helpful, generous, empathetic, caring, good communication skills, extrovert, active, dedicated, sensitive & compassionate to make a difference and should be able to extend one in all situations, etc
Community and social services are about creating and maintaining supportive, healthy, stable, and caring communities
Social work and Community welfare have much in common. They both are human service professions that share a commitment to social justice, human rights and social welfare and are recognized by State and Commonwealth governments.
There are some differences between the two professions which lead to different educational paths. Community Welfare tends to be more focused on what might be considered direct practice: casework, group work and community development. Social workers are expected to be competent in these areas but also in fields of ‘indirect’ practice such as research and policy development. Within organizations there may be different expectations and career paths open to the two professions.
