Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur socialsekreterare upplever att de kan tillgodose barns behov vid familjehemsplaceringar. För att nå syftet har fem kvalitativa intervjuer genomförts med socialsekreterare anställda på socialtjänsten vars arbete är kopplat till placeringsförfaranden. Resultaten visar att socialsekreterare upplever att de inte kan tillgodose barnens alla behov, utan man behöver göra en bedömning om vad som är viktigast. Barns åsikter och önskemål blir lyssnade på men faller ofta bort då andra behov bedöms vara viktigare. Resultaten visar även att det är stor brist på familjehem vilket får socialsekreterarna att uppleva att de måste nöja sig med en matchning som är ”good enough” och hoppas på att placeringen blir bra ändå. Viljan att tillgodose barns behov finns medan möjligheten att göra det är begränsad.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate how social workers experience their possibility to meet children’s needs in the work with foster home placement. Five qualitative interviews have been held with social workers within the social services, whose work is related to foster care placements. The results show that social workers experience that they are not able to meet all children’s needs, and therefore they have to value what need is more important than other. Children’s voice and requests are being listened to but are not always being considered as important as the other needs. The result also shows that there is a great shortage of foster homes which makes social workers feel that they have to settle for a match that is “good enough” and hope that everything goes well. The desire to meet every child’s needs is there, but the possibility to do that is limited.
