Small World has social workers living in and outside the US, so we may have a social worker stationed near you! Depending on caseloads and availability Small World will assign one of our employees living closest to you or traveling nearest to you.

You will be additionally responsible for the travel costs of our employee to visit your home for the inspection and personal interviews. We also at times may have an employee from the US traveling in your area. If this is the case then you will be responsible for their transportation costs only from a major hub city near you.
