Social work in context with children welfare is a social science that allows the social workers to apply various research methods in order to improve the social living conditions of children and their families.The role of the social worker is not limited by the pertinent social problems of children which include their education and living and protection but also to help preservation of their families while remaining into the boundaries of social justice. By multidisciplinary team, it is meant that every social worker in the team has been assigned to a particular social task, which is carried out by the mutual collaboration and participation of all the members of the social work teaThe most significant aspect which is related to a multidisciplinary social work is the appropriate linkage of social work with social policy. Social policy is aimed to assist the state welfare services to the extent where social worker found the convenience to promote children well-being within the society. Since a social worker is well aware of the notion that social well-being can only be achieved through individuals' satisfaction which is defined by fulfilling their needs at social level, therefore he performs his duty in relation to the other members of the multidisciplinary team, so that other members of the team may find it useful to play their part. This is sometimes beyond providing the food, housing and clothing concerns. This is illustrated on page 3. In other words, social policy makes it easier for the multidisciplinary team to quantify children satisfaction of needs while restricting the social approaches at the basic level. Social policy analyses, while social worker practices and implements the policies (Parrott, 2002, p. 3).
Ensuring Stability of Children - Children Act 1989
Social policies while acknowledging the fact that child is unable to groom unless given adequate resources and environment, developed some strategies to be implemented at the local level. Named after the Children Act 1989, the social policy reformed provisions for the local authority services in context with children's homes, housing conditions and every organisation and community to which a child is a part thereof. The Children Act 1989 analysed every legal reform pertaining to children and developed provisions that ameliorated child fostering, grooming, inclusion of day care centres and adoption (DFES, 2004).
From Child Welfare to children accommodation in various establishments, the Act bridges the gap between the actual welfare and legislation and serves to guide the social workers in a division of 12 sections. It is to this reason why a multidisciplinary team is required so that each social worker of the team serves to the purpose of implementing appropriate measures of the Children Act 1989. Part I of the 1989 Act highlights introductory issues like child welfare and parental responsibility in the welfare. Part II deals with the residential issues in context with legal proceedings of the child's family. Financial aid is a part of it. Part III deals with defining the local authorities in the provision of day care and appropriate accommodation while part IV deals with supervising and caring for the children in legal context. Part V highlights all the measures in case of child abduction, aimed at securing and protection of children at local level. Part VI, VII and VIII signifies the role played on the behalf of community, voluntary and registered children's homes. Part IX and X is all about the ways in which fostering and day care should be provided. XI and XII define the miscellaneous issues on the grounds of children's inspection, health concerns and educational concerns in independent schools (Children Act 1989, 2008).
