Care workers is innocent

I work as a care-support worker in a supported housing project in London UK.

I work with people of around my own age who have various learning disabilities.

This is a rewarding job in terms of the effect you can have on other, vulnerable humans but it is extremely frustrating because in taking on the job you are essentially saying yes to being inadequate since the care-system in our greedy country is underfunded and understaffed.

Please remember when you next condemn a social worker for the things that must go wrong that it is the system which is woefully incapable of the required task.
