Principal Social Workers

WM-ADASS has a well-established Principal Social Worker Network that includes principal social workers from each of our 14 councils

The Network meets virtually bi-monthly to support the West Midlands Improvement Programme providing information, improvement and best practice sharing for activists across the region. It also aims to:

  • ensure an engaged and committed regional PSW to identify and respond to the challenges and changing social work landscape
  • strengthen the profile of social work, facilitate consistent approaches and address common challenges
  • better engage with front line practice and people with lived experience to grow and develop social work practice in the region

The Network is sponsored by Pete Fahy, Director of Adult Services, Coventry City Council, chaired by Andrew Errington, Principal Social Worker at Coventry City Council and Seanna Lassetter, Walsall Council, and supported by Mark Godfrey , WM ADASS.
