Social Workers and Support Workers are people you can speak to if you and your family need help, or if you are worried about a friend and what’s happening to them at home.
Social Workers at Orkney’s Children and Families Social Work Service are here to make sure that all children are happy and healthy. To them, the most important people are always children and young people who are growing up in Orkney.
You can contact them from Monday to Friday, between 9am and 5pm by calling 01856 873535 and asking for the Duty Social Worker. You can also contact them at other times on 01856 888000. This will take you to The Balfour Hospital switchboard then you ask for the Emergency Social Worker.
