The aim of this study was to examine how the social worker regards his/her work and the expectations set on them, and also what possibilities they have in affecting the activation requirements for assistance recipients. The study was based on six social workers from a local social service agency working with financial assistance. The collected empiricism was then encoded by the theory of discretion. The result showed that the social worker’s working situation is complex, since the social worker has to take the needs of the assistance recipients into consideration while simultaneously having to follow rules and guidelines. The social worker has a relatively broad discretion, but it is largely directed by how the organisation is structured. The individual social worker has the possibility to affect the requirements for the assistance recipient, although this possibility changes when it comes to the assistance recipient’s activation measures.
