Interesting, you remind me of a great debate about whether the poor need social work. In this debate, politicians thought poor people’s need for social services could be fulfilled by the income system. However, the key point of providing social service to the poor is providing help for individuals when they have no one else to turn to. As long as the policies cannot cover every single person, the blank space should be filled by the social worker.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
