Advantages for the service provider Disadvantages for the service provider A service provider might not tolerate a person, which is different race, gender, religion, etc. This means, that a service provider will be unable to work with person like that.

Unfortunately, if an individual is choosing to become homeless there are often much bigger, darker rooted problems. For example, an individual in an abusive domestic relationship may choose to leave their home without a place to go for fear of their own safety. I believe it is important that an individual has the ability to maintain autonomy in knowing that when circumstances such as these arise society has adequately prepared to help. Such help may include shelters for victims of domestic abuse and transition homes so that self-improvement may be encouraged. Unfortunately poverty and homelessness are so intertwined that those who find themselves living on the streets often enter a vicious cycle that may inhibit self-improvement and according to Mills may then affect the general welfare of
You can use reflective practice to improve the quality of the service you provide by thinking about a task you previously completed and asking yourself: What could have been done better? & How will I do that task next time? How standards can be used to help a social care worker reflect on their practice Standards are guidelines put in place to follow when completing a task or action, these standards are there to ensure the job in hand is completed to the required standard or above. If you are not meeting the required standards then you can identify these areas when reflecting on the task, areas that have to be improved to meet the requirements. Aii) Notes a) It’s important to receive feedback on your performance as a social care work so people can tell you what you do well and what areas you could make improvements.
Social exclusion is a dynamic process and can be transmitted from one generation to the next although not voluntary. It is due to the fact that some people do not get a fair deal in society because of social differences. Some sociologists have agued that it is a mechanism for poverty. There are two types of poverty. According to Townsend (1979) individuals or families can be said to be in poverty when they lack the resources to obtain the type of diet, participation in the activities that are at least widely encouraged in society.
This unit introduces learners to issues of diversity, and how the underlying principles of ethical health and care practice may be used to promote an anti-discriminatory/anti-bias approach. An understanding of the rights of each individual is essential for learners who are interested in gaining future employment in the health or social care sectors. This understanding will also be of use to learners who aspire to progress on to Level 3 qualifications in Health and Social Care. It is recommended that this unit is taught early on in the course. Topics introduced in this unit are developed further in Unit 6 Cultural Diversity in Health and Social Care and the assignments that follow combine assessment for the whole of Unit 2 with some of the assessment requirements for Unit 6.
Question C: out line some of the ways in which material deprivation may affect educational development? Material deprivation is known as poverty. It is a lack of basic necessities such as adequate diet, housing, clothing or the money to buy these things. In education, material deprivation theory explains working class under achievement as the result of the lack of such resources. Unlike cultural deprivation theorists, who blame educational failure on the inadequacy of working class subculture, many other sociologists see material deprivation as the main cause of under achievement.
By doing so it supports inclusion and ensures effective collaboration between services (Jukes 2002). This is strengthened by Roper et al (1996) who said that to maintain health it is essential to educate carers who give the direct care to individuals. Emerson (2011) describes and enhances the need for training as research indicates that support staff feels they have a lack of knowledge and by not having the skills to recognize and identify health needs of an individual in their
There is a diverse clientele and without knowledge of backgrounds, family structure, and even religious status, the social worker would have difficulty to convey what would be necessary to achieve the goals for the individual. An honest assessment of the levels of function in the cultural structure of others is a huge challenge for some. This fault on some of the practitioners could cause barriers in some cases of effectiveness in reform and intervention. McPhatter, A. R. (1997). Cultural competence in child welfare: What is it?
