Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council are pleased to be sponsoring the Social Work Awards this year, highlighting our ongoing commitment to all those working in social care. We are delighted to be part of the awards and have had the pleasure of having several social workers shortlisted and receive awards in the past.
This year has had a big impact on the social care sector, raising the profile of staff who work within the field including Social Workers. When faced with crisis, our Social Workers did what they do best, ensuring communities received the support they require. During this time Social Care staff have also had to adapt to new ways of working and to constant changing guidance, whilst ensuring that the persons voice remains at the centre of all decision making.
Social workers, like everyone else have faced challenges in their personal lives like never before, but throughout this they have continued to support each other, embraced new ways of working and ensured that services can continue with minimal disruption, and for this we would like to take this opportunity to thank them for all the hard work and dedication they have shown through such unprecedented times.
