    Quite. Very interesting. But here's something that is not hypothetical...

    1.5 Promoting equal opportunities for service users and carers;

    1.6 Respecting diversity and different cultures and values

    5.8 Behave in a way, in work or outside work, which would call into question your suitability to work in social care services.

    I wonder what the Social Care Council thinks of homophobia.

    I think I just lost a little faith in humanity.
    Why in the world would you pick a low-paying career in Social Services if you hate people? Use some financial wisdom and go into politics or something...at least people expect bigotry from them!

    What kind of attitude is that coming from a Social Worker?
    Ridiculous.

    Please. Of course it's a good outcome. If the guy is an alcoholic he's going to drink until he dies. The money I give him won't make a jot of difference, except for the fact that it'll buy him some better quality booze for a little while. It won't change his life expectancy, or his chances of getting off the street. Only he can do that. My sympathy for him is worth nothing unless he decides for himself to do something about his condition.

    If he had any family, I'd consider giving the money to them in the hopes that they would use it to take care of him. I don't think I'd refer him to a social worker though... I hear social workers are a bunch of fakes.

    Yeah, i think your one of the good guys here, i didn't mean to offend you in my post, i was arguing with assumption rather than you personally. Also i think your response was fairly light hearted and not meant to be taken as gospel.

    Well there is certainly one social worker here who is a complete fake. My skin crawls when i think of this person having responsibility for the welfare of people less able to take care of themselves. Something really should be done about it. Seriously.

    GemPop, your social conscience does you credit.

    So I take it the words "rehab" and "recovering" are not in your vocabulary?

    The money I give him won't make a jot of difference, except for the fact that it'll buy him some better quality booze for a little while. It won't change his life expectancy, or his chances of getting off the street.
    This is like saying "my vote doesn't count because the winner will win by millions of votes." If everyone bands together and pays attention to how their behavior and decisions affect others, then they do make a difference.

    Only he can do that. My sympathy for him is worth nothing unless he decides for himself to do something about his condition.
    I disagree for the above reason. I'm curious, though, if your sympathy is worthless to him, what's the point?

    If he had any family, I'd consider giving the money to them in the hopes that they would use it to take care of him. I don't think I'd refer him to a social worker though... I hear social workers are a bunch of fakes.
    Social-worker stereotypes aside, the other solution is to just buy him food instead of giving him money.

    They are; I believe I used the term "rehab facility" in my earlier post. Perhaps in your haste to antagonize me, you didn't read it properly.

    The original question had nothing to do with banding together. It was about the actions of one person.

    None that I know of.

    Yes, you could do that too. It would be just as inconsequential.
