More than 150 Bexley social workers were acknowledged last week (March 15) at a special event to coincide with World Social Work Day (March 20).

The annual day sees individuals and organisations around the world celebrating social work to highlight the value and contributions made through the profession.

Bexley celebrated the event by holding the second annual Bexley Children’s Social Care Awards.

The award categories included: business support, student, social work assistant/keyworker/personal advisor, social worker, specialist practitioner, manager, team and leader.

In total there were 99 nominations across the categories.

Cabinet member for children’s services, cllr Philip Read, said: “It is important to remember that if any one of these areas were missing, there would be a great impact on our ability to serve and support local children, young people, and their families.

“They have extremely demanding and difficult jobs to do and it is important to step back and recognise the difference they make.”
