Contacting Social Work Services
If you have a Social Work enquiry, you will be directed to your local social work office. Our local offices are based in Cambuslang, East Kilbride, Hamilton and Lanark.
Staff within these teams will seek to deal with and resolve the issues that you raise at the time of your call. If this is not possible, they will seek to carry out more in depth inquiries to determine what further supports you may require.
