Abstract: Social work is one of several human services profession that have been sanctioned by society to help to improve the quality of life for all people. Social worker‘s professional relationships are built on regard for individual worth and dignity, and are advances by mutual participation, acceptance, confidentiality, honesty, and responsible handling of conflict. Social work as a profession has always had some difficulty in defining exactly what it is, and deed also in saying very succinctly what it does. This is not surprising, given the varied contexts in which it is expected to discharge its tasks and duties. It will only be possible to define what social work is in the particular context in which it takes place. Most social workers are primarily employees, which places them as professional groups. The roles, tasks and responsibilities of social workers are often defined by the context in which they are employed, rather than being universally applicable to the profession as a whole. In Pakistan, the scope of social work is gradually expanding with the increasing demand for such services and the availability of trained social workers in the field. The study has encompassed the role of a social worker in social issues, their importance and performance, and the problems they face in their fields. The research will be conducted by descriptive, qualitative and quantitative method, case studies and interviews by questionnaire method. This study will be helpful for professional social worker to better perform in society with according to the ethics of social work and also for students to improve their learning and skills.
