Question and answer
describe a social policy that may affect your future position as a human service worker?
There are a number of social policies that may affect a person's future as a human services worker, and these depend on the departments that a person is working in, [ and what their job role is. Healthcare policies Those working in the area of healthcare may be affected if a social policy was introduced to centralize certain services. If this was to happen, then there would inevitably be
cutbacks in terms of jobs and money spent on certain areas of healthcare. Welfare policies Changes to the welfare system could affect a worker in this area in two ways. If benefits were cut, it could have a detrimental effect on the lives of many, and if someone was working on a one to one basis with people who were on benefits this could affect the relationship that the two parties have. Another effect of a change to welfare policies would be that there would be less people needed to work in the sector, and job losses may be required. Pension policies As with the healthcare and welfare policy examples, changes to pension policy could have a bearing on the future employment of somebody working in this sector. Pensions and the timing of their payout is constantly under review, and this could have a detrimental effect on many people in this sector. Education policies Merging schools to save money is a popular policy at the moment in some parts of the world, including the United Kingdom. People working in education will be threatened by this, as there will inevitably be less jobs for teachers and support staff. This will affect morale, and will have a knock-on effect to the pupils of the schools in question. ]
