CF Social Work Limited is a private social work company founded in December 2006 by the Director Cheryl Finlayson, DipSW,BA (Hons). Since its infancy, the company has provided independent specialist assessments in private and public law cases. We receive instructions from local authorities and family law solicitors throughout the UK.

Due to its expansion, the Company can now provide a team of Social Workers, Therapists, Trainers, Family Support Practitioners and Contact Supervisors, who have extensive knowledge in the areas of Child Protection, Children in Need and the assessment of complex family issues (Services Provided).

Our companies are expanding dramatically. The current social work climate dictates that high quality work completed within timescales at a reasonable cost is at a premium. Our group of companies will help you meet your needs and targets by bringing to you the benefits of the private sector: quality, value for money and reliability.
