As part of their Celebrating Social Workers Week, Worcestershire County Council hosted a Social Work Awards ceremony on Monday. This was to highlight the fantastic and outstanding achievements amongst their social workers across both adult’s social care and children’s services.
For adult’s social care; nominations were made by colleagues for personal qualities and inspirational practice. For children’s services; nominations were made based on positive feedback and compliments.
Social workers were recongised and praised for their consistent approach and dedication to the profession.
Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Children and Families Councillor Andy Roberts said: “Our teams of social workers work extremely hard and we want to give them the recognition they rightly deserve. Their dedication is second to none in ensuring vulnerable children, young people and adults continue to lead happy, safe and independent lives.”
The aim of the Celebrating Social Workers Week is to help improve knowledge of the profession, staff morale, recruitment and retention.
With the recent launch of their new Social Work Academy, in a bid to improve the confidence and skills of social workers, it is a great time to be based within the profession across the local authority. Well done Worcestershire County Council!
