A retired North Somerset social worker, who spent three decades serving vulnerable people across the district, has received a pair of impressive prizes.
Jenny Slee picked up two awards at the Social Worker of the Year Awards on November 30 in London, where her many years of dedicated service were recognised.
Competition judges in their feedback said they were ‘moved’ by the love and respect Jenny garnered from her colleagues.
She walked away with two trophies – a gold award for best team leader, and she received a silver in the lifetime achievement category.
Jenny was handed her prize by Maris Stratulis, national director of the British Association of Social Workers.
He said: “Many congratulations to Jenny. She is the epitome of what a dedicated professional social worker would hope to have achieved in their lifetime and should be very proud of her achievements.”
