There have always been misunderstandings about social policies and social work, with most people referring to both as the same thing. However, according to (Antwi 2017), the two terms are distinct, with social policies allowing one to comprehend social problems in our society, their origins, and how government authorities, agencies, and organizations have implemented or are implementing policies to address these issues, such as poverty education. On the other hand, social work entails actively working with individuals to effect social change to enhance individuals’ level of living. As is with the social workers who assist those who are vulnerable in the society is an instance of the effecting social change. The other terms worth noting in their differences are statutes and policies. According to (Oxford learner Dictionaries, 2021), a policy is a principle or guideline established by an organization, agencies, or government’s governing body when making a decision or achieving a goal. On the contrary, a statute is a written law passed by a governing body.
