We are delighted to announce today that our Managing Director Brigid Robinson has been awarded an MBE as part of the Queen’s birthday honours.
We are thrilled for Brigid, who has worked tirelessly to improve the lives of care experienced children and young people, making sure they always have a voice.
Brigid said of her award: “I am stunned and delighted to receive this honour. Over the last 32 years I have been privileged to work with professionals who want to make the care system the best it can be, and care experience children and young people whose resilience, creativity and desire to make the system better for others have inspired me every day.
“I hope their voices shine through and that we are able to take the opportunity now afforded by the Independent Review of Social Care to not just look after children in and leaving care, but to ensure that they flourish.”
