Survey: Social workers overworked, underpaid

In the absence of adequate government funding for welfare initiatives, 85% of social workers are forced to rely on NGOs to provide assistance to people in need, according to a survey released by the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews.

The survey was released ahead of World Social Work Day, observed annually in March, which will be marked at the Knesset on Tuesday at the initiative of the IFCJ, the Association of Social Workers, and former welfare minister, Deputy Knesset Chairman Meir Cohen.
