Julie Jones leaves SCIE - tribute

30 March 2012

Julie Jones is leaving SCIE on Friday 30 March 2012.

On behalf of the staff and board of trustees, Chair Allan Bowman says:

Julie has overseen five years of fantastic achievement at SCIE. There’s been the continued growth of our rigorous evidence base; finding out what works in social care and then telling the sector about it.

Julie’s skill has been to juggle many different priorities; from making SCIE publications accessible to all, to the creation of Social Care TV, to midwifing the National Skills Academy and The College of Social Work into existence.

Julie has personally focussed on the importance of recognising the effects that long-term conditions have on social care. She’s passionate about what can be achieved for people who use services, by making the link with health and other agencies as seamless as possible.

We wish Julie well; she’s much to be proud about and can look back on a successful career in local government and at SCIE.
