Health workers have a unique opportunity to advocate and prioritise children and young people’s safety, welfare and wellbeing, and connect families with support.
On September 7 health workers across Northern Sydney Local Health District were recognised for their work in making this opportunity a reality at the NSLHD Child and Young Person Wellbeing and Protection Awards.
Held during National Child Protection Week, the event celebrated the achievements of individuals, teams and services whose child focused practice supports the safety, welfare and wellbeing of children and young people in Northern Sydney.
Associate Professor Elisabeth Murphy, Director of Child, Youth and Family, hosted the event and Executive Director of Operations Elizabeth Wood presented the awards.
Special guest speakers from The Cornucopia Committee; President Maureen Thornett and Secretary Sue Beston attended, and video entertainment was provided by Royal North Shore Hospital Child Care Centre.
Congratulations to all of the winners:
