Sunderland City Council is delighted to be sponsoring the 2020 Thank You Social Workers event.
Here in Sunderland we recognise the added value and improved outcomes for people that social workers can be instrumental in achieving. It is their dedication and commitment that forms part of the DNA of every successful social work team. The necessity to work productively with customers, carers, partner agencies, and wider society has never been more evident than during the current Covid-19 pandemic and our efforts in these respects deserve to be recognised and celebrated.
Social workers provide support and nurturing, utilising safe creative spaces for experimenting and learning from one another whilst staying true to our core values. In recent times the social worker has had to learn or enhance their knowledge of assistive technology, strength based assessment, new ways of working and responding to ever increasing demands at an extraordinary pace, then proceed to instil this knowledge across not only their own organisations but also with customers themselves and key strategic partners. All of this of course requires their ability to both utilise, contribute to design and building reciprocal learning and developmental environments across our wider social care sector.
Sunderland City Council is delighted to be part of this event and wish to express our thanks to all the social workers who work tirelessly to support the workforce to ensure that the social work service is delivered to those most in need.
