This article argues that New Labour's priorities for social inclusion through employment, and for strenthening civil society, have relegated public‐sector social work to a limited role in assessing and managing risks. However, as failures in the government's top‐down, regulatory approach emerge, there will be new opportunities for a broader‐based version of the profession to contribute to a more progressive programme.
