i'd say it depends on whether you think it would be useful for the user to know
the context they are in.  on one site i maintain the skip link is the very
first thing people encounter, so it's helpful to tell them where they are, in
which section of the site, so i skip them to the breadcrumbs.  in your case
people come across the header (Social Worker Resources) first and are then
offered the skip to contents link.  your breadcrumbs don't provide any
information that isn't already in the header, so i would skip them straight to
the main contents.
