Redditch Editorial 24th Jan, 2018

A SOCIAL worker from Redditch has had her consistent work with children in Worcestershire recognised at a county awards ceremony.

Zoe Brown was the final award winner from the children’s team following her consistent positive feedback from children she has supported.

Worcestershire County Council hosted the Social Work Awards ceremony at County Hall on Monday and it recognised outstanding achievement amongst their social work teams.

In Adult Social Care, nominations were made by colleagues for personal qualities and inspirational practice and in Children’s Social Care, nominations were made based on positive feedback and compliments.

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.

“These awards give us as a Council, a chance to show our gratitude to social workers for all their tireless efforts.”

Worcestershire County Council employs around 350 social workers who work together to improve the lives of Worcestershire’s children and young people and adults with care and support needs.
