Final year UWS MSc Social Work student, Edward McKim has been recognised with an honorary award for his services to Social Work.
Edward‘s nomination for Student Social Worker of the Year at the Scottish Association of Social Work (SASW) Awards was an exceptional nomination as it came from a family he has worked with.
The anonymous nominator drafted a heartfelt letter explaining how initially they were reluctant to receive help from social work services. In spite of this, the determined 27 year-old from Greenock didn’t give up and the nominator goes on to say that “unlike every other person he was the only one who did not talk at me – he talked to me”. The individual signed off the nomination “a family that feels much better for having this guy come into our life”.
