The emergence of e-society impacts in sophisticated ways our day-to-day lives. In turn, this affects the provision of social work and social support to communities, including young people. The development and subsequent evaluation in the United Kingdom (UK) of a virtual or on-line social work service for young people provides an opportunity to reflect on how e-provision may require fieldwork and academic staff to re-think the way communication skills are taught to students.
