Gloucestershire County Council’s Children and Young People’s Service is committed to continually developing and improving.


We’re passionate about working creatively to help children lead happy, safe and settled lives. And we believe that dynamic, motivated and committed social work teams are essential to this, which is why we’ve chosen to sponsor the Social Work Team of the Year award.


We know that teams pulling together and working effectively makes all the difference when the pressure is on. Building the skills and knowledge of the team is key to delivering the best possible support to vulnerable children, and we want to recognise the hard work and commitment of social work teams across the UK.


Our passion and positive mindset feeds into every aspect of our work. We’re focused on empowering the whole service to feel valued and love what they do. Our first local Gloucestershire Social Work Practice awards are taking place in 2016 and we’re really excited by the prospect of celebrating our local talent.


This is all part of how we are making Gloucestershire a place where social workers enjoy and take pride in their job.
