- Practice Educator of the Year – Lynn Lock, Young People’s Substance Misuse Service
- Team Leader of the Year – Clare Luby, Adoption Team
- Newly Qualified Social Worker of the Year – Jack McWaters, Safeguarding Team
The Social Worker of the Year Awards were established in 2006 to recognise the hard work and positive impact that social workers have on the lives of vulnerable children, families and adults.
The Practice Educator of the Year award is for inspiring practice educators who are successfully motivating their students to develop their careers in social work.
The Team Leader of the Year award is for an outstanding individual team leader who can show clear leadership skills and the ability to successfully manage a team.
The Newly Qualified Social Worker of the Year award is for newly qualified social workers (less than 12 months experience) that have made a difference through their outstanding work with children and families.
You can find about more about the awards on the Social Worker of the Year website.
The awards ceremony takes place in November.
