The work of people who have gone that extra mile to help Doncaster children and young people in care were rewarded for their effortsat an awards ceremony earlier this week.

During the Star Awards, held for Doncaster Children’s Services Trust staff and external workers who help give children a great start in life, a total of 15 winners were announced in a wide range of categories.

Jet setting social worker, Sierra Walton, has swapped her life in New York to help children, young people and families in Thorne.

It’s a far cry from working in child protection in a hospital neo natal unit in the Big Apple but Sierra says she is relishing the challenge of being in the small English town – and particularly her experiences of working for the Doncaster Children’s Services Trust.

Young people leading the way

The voice of the child in Doncaster is getting louder and clearer, thanks to several new schemes developed by the Doncaster Children’s Services Trust.

And the appointment of the first two modern apprentices is the latest development in our programme to put children and young people at the centre of everything we do.

It is hoped that care leavers Mica and Becci can help the Trust connect with even more young people and further help to shape future services.

“She is a really good social worker. She listens to me; she fights for my rights; she has a laugh with me and is honest with me. She is the best social worker ever.”
