Social worker awards

Have your say

SOCIAL workers in Derbyshire have been shortlisted in five categories of the prestigious national social worker of the Year awards.

The annual awards are aimed at improving the reputation and understanding of the social work profession and recognising outstanding teams and individuals.

Derbyshire County Council and its staff are nominated for awards in the newly qualified adult social worker of the year, adult social worker of the year, children’s social worker of the year, team of the year and employer of the year categories.

Coun Charles Jones, cabinet member for adult care, said:“The job of a social worker can be extremely difficult and challenging, but our social workers are highly trained and professional, always working towards getting the best results for everyone they work with.”
