Social Workers and Support Workers work with children, young people, and their families, when there are concerns about their wellbeing. children, young people and their parents or carers can refer to the service when they need additional support.
They are committed to our children and young people growing up in Orkney and strive to make sure that the best interests of children and young people are paramount in any decision making about their lives by promoting and advocating their views and rights.
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.
