Social Welfare, often at times you read or hear about Social Welfare in Trinidad mostly the negative aspects, however, what you seldom hear or read about are some of the positive impact Social Welfare officers play in the life of members in society.
On a testimonial note, I've witness Social Welfare officers at the Caroni Local Board , going out and beyond the call of duty, ensuring the satisfaction of their clients' well-being.
After a client leaves the office of a Social Welfare board, the work does not stop there, alot of paperwork has to be done in limited time to ensure a smoothe processing of the grants.
In recent news headling the different needs and issues of people in Trindiad and Tobago does not all rest in the hands of Social Welfare but for the communities and other social outreach in which our Minister from Ministry of the People and Social Development. Dr. Glenn Ramadharsingh stated “Our visit here is symbolic as we want no community to be disconnected from the ministry. We want to partner with the NGOs and show people that we are here for them” he said.
I believe that inspite it all, positive will always conquer negative and even the thinnest paper have two sides to it, we must try to see positive in everything we do as a society, as these Social Workers at Social Welfare see positive and equality in their clients

This is a concern citizen in the gracious Republic of Trinidad & Tobago that have a serious problem with the welfare office on duke street, Port of Spain. There is this officer that has been on sick leave since last year and there is a back log of work that have to be done and every time you call or go to see this lady she is not in office and the lame excuses that ppl get is that she is very sick, if she is so sick get somebody else to do her work. So what, poor people have to suffer because she is so sick. That is why this country is like this, what these ppl are saying that this woman is so indispensable that she cannot be replace until she get well, if it was ppl from westmoorings u will see how fast they find someone. Come on Minister do some thing for these poor families that are awaiting on there money when the month come, don't let little children suffer because of one woman who is soooooooooo sick. The staff there that give ppl these bullshit excuses all the time and they always promised to return your calls and you will never hear from them. Do they know "a promised is a comfort to a fool", and we are no fool anymore. I want u all to put yourself in these poor ppl shoes and feel how they feeling when they have young children to sent to school and hungry mouths to feed, how can you all sleep at nights, remember god does not sleep he knows everything, have a heart and i mean a big heart and do something now instead of prolonging this problem.
