Royal honour for social workers

Two social workers from Brighton & Hove City Council have been invited to a Royal Garden Party.

The invitation to Buckingham Palace on Wednesday 15 May follows a visit to the city last year by the Children’s Minister, Nadhim Zahawi.

Ruth Nathan and Jennifer Parr took the Minister on a programme of working visits meeting local families and learning first-hand about some of the difficulties they face.

Jennifer said: “He said he really enjoyed the day and found it a real learning experience.

“As a social worker it’s so lovely to have the work we do recognised. It really means a lot to us.”

Ruth said: “Social work is a vocation and it’s something I’m very proud to do.”
