A comedy about harangued and stressed-out social workers.
Social workers Rose and Al work in a children's services department, dealing every day with the all too familiar social issues that flood the media. Swimming against a tide of bureaucracy and pedantry, and contending with the absurdities and irrationalities of life in a county council office, Damned follows Al and Rose as they navigate their way through their equally trying professional and personal lives.
Every day, the team of dedicated social workers in Children's Services at Elm Heath council are faced with government cuts, huge levels of stress-related sick leave, useless temporary staff and an ever increasing client list. And if it isn't the clients, it's the ex-clients. And if not them, it's their private lives that are giving them grief. Welcome to the world of the Damned.
