Community services workers (CSWs) play a very important role in society.
They work directly with vulnerable people who need immediate support, including at-risk youth, survivors of domestic abuse, refugees and people suffering from addiction and mental health issues.
Community services workers connect people with resources, provide counselling, and arrange treatment programs depending on each person’s needs.
It can be an incredibly rewarding career path for anyone looking to work with others and help address social issues.
Without the support of community services workers, many at-risk people would have nowhere to turn for help. CSWs make a real difference in the community.
