SSAFA Worldwide Social Work Services has been selected as a finalist in the Social Worker of the Year Awards for their outstanding work with the children of our Forces and their families.
The Germany based team has been nominated for the Social Worker Team of the Year Children’s Services prize, the winner of which will be announced at a ceremony in London on Friday 29th November.
Robert Templeton, SSAFA’s Director of Social Work, said: “It is an honour to have the work of the entire team recognised for providing positive and life changing support to Forces families. Providing lifelong support, particularly for families on the move, has always been at the heart of what we do.”
SSAFA provides a comprehensive social work service for children and adults, with statutory obligations akin to that of local authorities in the UK for child protection and safeguarding.
The team of 22 currently supports a community of almost 40,000 military personnel and their families across western Europe.
