Last Friday, Lin – one of our directors and the registered manager of Christies Care had the great honour of presenting an award at the Social Worker of the Year awards in London. We sponsored the award for Adult Social Worker of the Year and Lin was there representing Christies.
The winner in this category was Patricia Fifeld of Warwickshire County Council who has been working as a social worker for over 40 years. The judges said:
“Pat is a hugely experienced social worker with an excellent local reputation. What came across most in her entry was how proud her team members are of her. Pat’s nomination was full of heartfelt endorsements from colleagues and superiors, and the feedback from service users was heart-warming.
Despite a lengthy career, Pat is committed to developing her skills and evolving the way she works by adopting innovative practices.”
Huge congratulations to Pat, the other winners and all of the finalists.
And as Lin said, Christies is delighted to have been involved in these awards, they provide a platform to show all in the social work profession how invaluable the work is that they do.
