Redbridge Council has released a short film showcasing the invaluable contribution of social services staff in supporting the borough’s most vulnerable residents.
Despite having to endure more than a decade of austerity due to government spending cuts, Redbridge is still one of the top ten local authorities for adult welfare.
The film shows how Redbridge is now embracing digital technology while maintaining a personal relationship with adult social service clients.
Redbridge Council Leader Cllr Athwal, who provides commentary as part of the film, sets the tone as he explains how essential it is for the council to provide care and support to those in need.
Cllr Athwal, said: “A large part of our budget is spent on adult social services and rightly so. Many of the people we care for have served the country or the borough with distinction. And now they deserve to be honored. have dignity in their old age.
“This new film pays special tribute to the social workers who have worked tirelessly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We know workers who literally left their own families at the height of the pandemic to care for our residents, it is more than a job, it is a way of life.
“And you can tell they really care. We are so lucky to have such talented and compassionate staff. It’s also why we have excellent adult social services.”
