Sponsoring: ‘Newly Qualified Children’s Social Worker of the Year’
We recognise the hard work and dedication of children’s social workers right across the country and the positive impact they make at all stages of their careers supporting some of the most vulnerable families in our communities.
“This year we’re proud to be sponsoring the Newly Qualified Children’s Social Worker of the Year category. It’s always inspiring to see the difference that nominees have been able to make at the start of their careers in this challenging but highly rewarding profession. Congratulations to every one of you and thank you for your ongoing commitment and drive to support families and keep children safe.” Sophie Wales, Service Director, Children’s Services at Barnsley Council, and lead AD for Children’s Social Work Matters (CSWM).
CSWM is a partnership of all 15 Local Authorities Children’s Services across the Yorkshire and Humber region. Collectively we continue to work hard to nurture and support our Children’s social work workforce. As well as seeing staff grow in confidence and resilience, our investment in staff through training and development and offering good career progression opportunities is improving our delivery of modern-day practice and our ability to make a difference in children’s and families lives.
