Two social workers at Brighton and Hove City Council have been honoured with a royal invitation.
Jennifer Parr and Ruth Nathan have been invited to a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday, May 15.
It follows a visit to the city last year by the Children’s Minister, Nadhim Zahawi, who met with local families and learned first-hand about some of the difficulties they face.
Jennifer said: “He said he really enjoyed the day and found it a real learning experience.
“As a social worker it’s so lovely to have the work we do recognised. It really means a lot to us.”
Ruth said: “Social work is a vocation and it’s something I’m very proud to do.”
