Michelle from Iriss interviews Lorraine Ward, a social worker
who has worked with the children and families social work
department in Glasgow for over 25 years and was awarded for Best
Practice in Equality & Diversity at the SASW Awards 2019.
Lorraine started work within the Asylum and Roma team of
Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership in February
2017 and initiated the peer mentoring programme - New Young Peers Scotland
unaccompanied asylum seeking young people soon after.
Lorraine enjoys developing new and innovative projects,
working closely with partners but most of all enjoys listening to

their voice and fulfil their aspirations.
