Description: SCP-XXXX is a rare phenomenon which occurs exclusivley within urban and suburban areas of England and Scotland, involving the manifestation of an unknown entity at the doorstep of an occupied household between the hours of 6am and 8am GMT. The entities, hereby designated as SCP-XXXX-1 occurances, almost always appear in buissness attire and refer to themselves as simply "social workers", or, on rare occasions, "government social workers".

SCP-XXXX events have been reported throughout the United Kingdom since at least 1963, with the highest number of occurances happening in England and Scotland. The locations at which SCP-XXXX-1 instances manifest are almost always lower income households containing no more than one child under the age 10. SCP-XXXX-1 enities will manfiest at the doorstep of the target household and will knock and or ring a doorbell until met by an occupant of the household. At this point, the entity will ask to be let into the house. If the occupant of the house allows the entity to enter, an SCP-XXXX-2 event will immediately follow. To date, only three SCP-XXXX-2 events have ended in the disappearance of the households only childs. In the majority of cases, the adult occupant of the household (if one is present) becomes suspicious and either asks the entity to leave, or stalls long enough for the entity to eventually leave of its own volition. Only one event has ended in the death of all occupants of the household, and only one event has lead to an incident involving [REDACTED]. However, in this instance, the only child of the household was home alone, and the entity is believed to have entered the house through force via an outside drainpipe.
