SCIE press release

Chief Social Workers

17 May 2013

The two Chief Social Workers in England have been named. Isabelle Trowler (Chief Social Worker for Children) will work alongside her adults counterpart Lyn Romeo. The Chief Social Workers will advise politicians on how best to improve standards in social work. Here is SCIE's comment.

SCIE offers a warm welcome to both Lyn and Isabelle, as they take up their new roles. These appointments recognise the important status of the social work profession and the significant contribution social work makes to the challenges facing the government, wider society and individual citizens, both young and old.

The Chief Social Workers give social work a voice to champion the profession and provide clear leadership for the improvement of services. All of us at SCIE look forward to supporting Isabelle and Lyn in any way that we can.

SCIE's Chief Executive, Andrea Sutcliffe.
