‘Thank You Social Workers’ event
BASW England supported major event in the social work calendar to celebrate the unique contribution and diversity of the social work community.
BASW England is honoured to have been the corporate Sponsor of the Social Worker of the Year Awards, which this year was a virtual ‘Thank You Social Workers’ event.
Comedian, TV broadcaster and BBC radio presenter, Judi Love, hosted the free virtual event which took place on 26th November 2020.
It was an important opportunity to reflect and recognise the unique challenges, bravery and dedication of all social workers during Covid-19.
The event featured a film by BASW England with contributions from BASW members, people that use services and headed by Maris Stratulis (BASW England National Director), Gerry Nosowska (BASW chair) and Ruth Allen (BASW CEO).
Inspiring messages were also shared by celebrities, filmed interviews with frontline social work practitioners and first-hand stories told by young people and adults who have been supported by social workers this year.
The event was also an important opportunity to remember those who have lost their lives in the UK and overseas, including dearly treasured and loved colleagues, their families and friends.
