On March 19th, Brent marked World Social Work Day with a conference celebrating the vital work that their Social Workers do, and the impact that they have on the local community. They honoured and appreciated their social workers in style!

This year’s theme, “Buen Vivir”, encapsulated the spirit of Brent’s work. Over 200 attendees heard first hand accounts of the positive changes that Brent's social work practitioners have brought to people's lives. The sessions included hearing from practitioners themselves about the impact they made, demonstrating how they have ‘grown’ in Brent using the array of tools and practice methodologies that they have access to.

Nigel Chapman, Brent's Corporate Director, was proud to see that their conference was a resounding success.

"This was a collaborative event with adult services social workers using the principles of Buen Vivir, and bringing our values, behaviours and anti-racist practice to the fore of our work with children and adults"

Palvinder Kudhail, Brent’s Director of Early Help and Social Care, was excited to see so many social workers taking part in this event.

"In Brent, we know how to celebrate! The commitment and support of managers at all levels to help front line practitioners succeed in whatever challenge they come across is amazing. That’s why we are the place to be right now!"
