Social Workers in Schools - SWIS are an early intervention scheme linked to the Strengthening Families. SWIS places a social worker right in school grounds, bringing together a child or young person’s home and school life.
A SWIS social worker is there to help when difficult family circumstances cause a young person to struggle with education, where issues of health or social development are barriers to learning.
