Celebrating Children’s Services workers

The life-changing work of those working with vulnerable children, young people, and their families, is being celebrated by Southampton City Council at a one-of-a-kind event at The Social bar.


The event, taking place on Thursday 18th October, will see The Social opening its doors to welcome social workers working with children in the local region, in order to say a big ‘thank you’ for all their hard work and commitment.


The evening is open to anyone from the local area who is working in a Children’s Services social work based role, not just those working for Southampton City Council, as a way of acknowledging their inspirational dedication to the children and families they work with.

This event is intended to provide an opportunity for practitioners to network with others working in similar roles, and there will be the chance to get involved in lots of wellbeing activities.


The Principal Social Work Team at Southampton City Council decided to organise the event to celebrate social work. Clare Gott, Advanced Practitioner from the team said: “This event is a chance for all of those working with children in the local area to meet up to chat and network, at the same time as letting our hair down and enjoying a well-earned bit of downtime!


“It’s an opportunity to remind ourselves why we chose the profession we’re in, the challenges we face, and the positive impact that we have on the lives of those we work with.


“Southampton’s a great place to live and work and we’re keen to share some of the employment benefits that are available at the council with those who have the same specialist skillset and experience that we do.”
