The Adoption Matters Northwest Chief Executive was recognised by the university for his 26 years of service in adoption, social work and childcare.
He received this prestigious honour at a ceremony at Chester Cathedral, among the university’s social work graduates.
“It’s an absolute honour to be chosen by the university, and I’m proud to have accepted it amongst a new generation of social workers as they prepare to face the challenges and rewards that await them,” said Norman.
“It’s a very important time in the social work profession and I hope that everyone graduating this year will experience the same satisfaction that I have during my career.”
