Family assigned social workers, British law

I have tried to Google this question and have come up with nothing conclusive, so I am hoping for information from British members of the community.

Would a British family ever be assigned a social worker by the government on account of a child's behavior? If so, under what circumstances? The family in question lives in London, if location has any bearing upon the answer, and the child is fifteen or sixteen years old. I was hoping that it would be possible for the family to be assigned a social worker against the parents' wishes; the parents in question have a very lax attitude toward their children's behavior.
