Scot­tish wel­fare as­sis­tance

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community Life - JC RE­PORTER

HOLO­CAUST SUR­VIVOR AND long­time wel­fare vol­un­teer Ju­dith Rosen­berg has es­tab­lished a so­cial work schol­ar­ship which will ben­e­fit Jewish Care Scot­land.

The schol­ar­ship will sup­port 25year-old Naomi Adams-Strump as she stud­ies for a BA in so­cial work through the Open Uni­ver­sity while work­ing for the char­ity.

“I never got the chance to go to uni­ver­sity and have a pro­fes­sional ca­reer so it is very spe­cial to be in a po­si­tion to give a young per­son to­day that op­por­tu­nity,” Mrs Rosen­berg ex­plained. “Train­ing is so im­por­tant. Apart from all the knowl­edge gained, it gives you a chance to bond with oth­ers in a sim­i­lar po­si­tion. Meet­ing Naomi was a spe­cial mo­ment and I wish her ev­ery suc­cess.”

Glasgow-born Ms Adams-Strump said: “Work­ing at Jewish Care Scot­land and ac­cess­ing the study pro­gramme will equip me with core knowl­edge, skills and val­ues to work with the Jewish com­mu­nity.”

Jewish Care Scot­land chief ex­ec­u­tive Ethne Wolk­man is “de­lighted to have Naomi on board and to have the schol­ar­ship funds for her uni­ver­sity study. We very much hope she will en­joy her new ca­reer and will serve our com­mu­nity for well into the fu­ture.”
