This practice framework aims to support social workers in NI to recognise and respond to the impact of poverty on individuals, families and communities. Poverty is an increasingly serious problem in NI society which disproportionately affects many of the service users we wish to support. Poverty is a major social injustice and as a profession committed to social justice, it should be a core concern. Social work’s purpose is to improve and safeguard social well-being and tackling poverty is central to enhancing well-being.
