  • Sharlen Nunez Belize The Durrants case is a profound and thought provoking case. Although Lynn and Arthur have their own disability they still provide for each other and meet the needs of the household. As an adult, I am honored to be paying taxes that can help older citizens to pay off some of their bills. Furthermore, Dev, the social worker, was there to identify the need, provide support services, intervene to protect individuals from risk of harm. A social worker has the responsibility to offer support and protection to the most vulnerable citizens of the wider community.
