"Áine McGuirk, chair of the Irish Association of Social Workers, agreed that changes were needed in recruitment and called for an increase in the number of college places offering social work courses.

However, the retention of social workers who practice their skills in “a high-risk environment where their efforts are rarely recognised or acknowledged” is the real problem, she said."

"The organisation which represents 1,300 social workers has told the Oireachtas its members often enter where others fear to tread - but the delayed release of inspection reports "rains further blows on perhaps already demoralised staff".

The Irish Association of Social Workers (IASW) also told an Oireachtas committee on children and youth affairs that its members needed to be "acknowledged by society rather than being constantly blamed".
