Led by the Scottish Government, and supported by Social Work Scotland and the Scottish Association of Social Workers (SASW) , we’re delighted to announce this year’s awards. The last year has been especially tough, and we hope that the awards will bring a celebratory note to shine a spotlight on the fantastic, relational and rights-based work supporting people throughout the pandemic.

What’s changed?

The awards have had a refresh, and reflect the work we know has been happening throughout COVID19 and before. You can nominate yourself, your social worker or support worker, or a team or colleague. The closing date for entries is 9 August, 2021, and finalists will be announced on 13 September.

Finalists will be invited to a short ceremony and drinks reception, and presentations will take place after the Social Work Scotland conference on 26 October 2021, at 5pm at the Crieff Hydro, Perthshire.
