The purpose of this report was to increase knowledge regarding the co-operation between social services from the perspective of employees at a school. The focus was on the question: “In the schools view, what is the relevance of co-operating with social services?” The problem was divided into three categories; the value of the co-operation, the schools discourse on co-operation and the balance of power in the co-operation. The scientific topic was addressed using a qualitative survey method at a school. Four people were interview; the principal, the welfare officer, and two teachers. Also, in order to further improve the survey, the interviewed subjects were brought together in a focus group. The scientific position taken could be characterized as hermeneutical-phenomenological and was inspired by both the hermeneutic of trust as well as the hermeneutic of suspicion. The results were analyzed from three perspectives; a social constructive perspective, a role theoretic perspective and from a power-balance perspective. The data indicated that all interviewed regarded the co-operation as something of large importance. Further, the most significant problem identified was the lack of feedback from the social services. Regarding the question of power there were contradictions noted between the statements made by the interview subjects, were only one subject recognized an imbalance in power in the co-operation.
