Norfolk’s Children’s Social Care is ambitious and passionately committed to children and families, with a real track record of success and strong aspirations for further excellence.
We know that our hard-working and dedicated social workers are at the very heart of all that we currently do and all that we aim to achieve in the future.
To support our social workers we are investing £12-15 million into a five-year plan to transform our services. We are about halfway through this plan and have already introduced many innovative new ways of working, which includes a range of experts and specialist support specifically to support social workers and frontline practice. We have also recently launched our transformed corporate parenting service.
We’re proud of how far we have come in Norfolk and what our social workers have achieved. But we know social work can be a tough but rewarding job.
So, we are delighted to sponsor this year’s Social Worker of the Year Awards to make our contribution nationally to the championing of social workers everywhere, who work so hard every day to support and protect children, young people and families.
