To mark World Social Work Day on 19th March, staff in children’s services in Wirral Council came together and celebrated the work they do to make a difference the lives of those children and families who need it most, with the first #BeTheDifference event.
The session was a chance to recognise the hard work and dedication of staff across the service and an opportunity to make more of a difference by raising money to support care leavers to go on a residential trip, a raffle of donated prizes.
Before the event Staff were asked to nominate any colleagues who they recognised as going the extra mile and making a difference to the lives of children and their families. All nominations were displayed during the lunch time session for colleagues to take a look at and recognise their colleagues.
The event was also the opportunity for staff in the service to find out more about the council’s recently launched #BeTheDifference campaign. An initiative to inspire staff, practitioners and volunteers to do all that they can to help those children and families who need it most.
