Social workers play a vital role in achieving better outcomes for individuals and on World Social Work Day we have an extra reason to celebrate social work. I have been working with social workers in one local authority and have taken away some key lessons about relationships in social work.
Our alternative advent calendar celebrates the people or teams who have inspired us this year
Dr. Krish Kandiah is the founder and director of Home for Good, a charity that encourages people to foster and adopt. I have never met someone better able to motivate people to do this than Krish. His skill in getting across the heart-breaking scale of the need for foster and adoptive families – and also showing the difference we can all make – is truly inspiring. He has both fostered and adopted children as part of his family, so it is also a tribute to him that he’s been able to dedicate so much energy and enthusiasm to his work.
