The core of the education welfare service work is school attendance and the welfare of young people. 

As part of this they also provide advice on child protection matters.

The education welfare service promotes the importance of regular school attendance and investigates the causes of poor attendance.

Allocations for education welfare service's time for schools are based on their attendance percentage and number of referrals made to the education welfare service. 

This service is responsive to changes in need.
