To mark this achievement, Councillor Stephen McCann welcomed these social workers, along with their families and colleagues, to Omagh for the presentation at the NISCC Professional in Practice Social Work Awards Ceremony.
The event was a colourful mixture of candidate stories and video presentations. Among the successful award winners were 40 social work leaders; including NISCC’s Colum Conway and Brenda Horgan. Leadership Awards were also presented to Western HSC Trust’s Karen O’Brien and Paul McCafferty; Cheryl Lamont - PBNI Chief Executive; Action for Children’s Dawn Shaw; South Eastern HSCT’s Brendan Whittle, Vivien McConvey – Chief Executive of Voice of Young People in Care, Northern HSC Trust’s Judith Brunt and Southern HSC Trust’s Colm McCafferty. The event also had a family feel to it with the presentation of awards to mother and daughter duo, Christine and Caragh McLaughlin.
