Browne Jacobson partner appointed social care sector ambassador

1 September 2021

Amanda Wright-Kluger, a partner and solicitor-advocate in Browne Jacobson’s Nottingham office, has been appointed a social care ambassador for the charity, Championing Social Care.

Championing Social Care was launched in September 2020 by a volunteer group of leaders from across the social care sector to promote a wider and deeper public understanding, appreciation and respect for social care.

She joins the charity’s 30-plus ambassadors which are drawn from a broad spectrum of organisations dedicated to the social care sector, including the Alzheimer's Society, CareTech plc, The Care Workers Charity, Care England and Institute of Health and Social Care Management amongst others.

Amanda is a member of the firm’s health and social care team and represents independent healthcare providers and NHS Trusts in inquest and advisory and regulatory matters. She also advises Trusts and Independent Care Providers on governance issues. Prior to joining Browne Jacobson, Amanda was a trial lawyer specialising in medical negligence in the USA for 13 years.

Browne Jacobson has one of the largest health and social care practices in England with over 120 professionals providing legal advice to local authorities, registered charities, residential and domiciliary care providers, insurers, sports governing bodies, religious organisations and inspectorates including the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales.

Amanda Wright-Kluger said:

"I am honoured and thrilled to join the Championing Social Care Team in shining a light on the incredible positive stories and celebrating initiatives within the social care sector.

“As a health lawyer I am privileged to work with so many hard working, talented and selfless people in the sector.

“Every day I am pleasantly surprised and humbled by the dedication, compassion and simple humanity that so many social care workers, from health care assistants to CEOs and everything in-between, give to the sector and the people they serve.

“This is especially the case over the last 18 months when our whole country but especially health care staff and leaders have had such a challenging time.

"The social care sector’s a brilliant shining light in our country and one that must be cherished, valued and promoted.

“I am thrilled to form part of this team leading such support in the sector and more widely.”

Jonathan Freeman, Vice – Chair of Championing Social Care, added:

“Our vision for Championing Social Care is to ensure a wider and deeper awareness and understanding of social care. Focusing on delivering positive stories and initiatives about the sector which we all care about so passionately.

“Our ambassadors are a key driver in delivering our vision and we are delighted that Amanda, with her knowledge and extensive sector experience, has accepted our invitation to work alongside the other fantastic leaders we have appointed to helping us to realise our goals.”
