The manager of Islington Council’s adoption and fostering service picked up her British Empire Medal from the Tower of London last week.
Susanna Daus, also a trustee of national charity The Fostering Network, was named in the Queen’s birthday honours list earlier this year and received her medal from Kenneth Olisa, lord lieutenant for London.
The award recognises those who give up their time and service to their community. Susanna, who started her career as a social worker, has worked for the town hall for 13 years.
She said: “I had a great day meeting the other medal winners and hearing about the amazing contributions they were making to their community.”
Islington has about 180 children and care leavers in the adoption service at any one time but is on the lookout for more foster carers for teenagers and brothers and sisters.
