Social workers will be honoured at the Houses of Parliament on 16 December when the House of Lords hosts the Social Worker of the Year Awards.
The event, which will celebrate and recognise the best practice within the social care sector, will also feature a unique question and answer panel discussion with the judging panel.
During the discussion, guests will be able to question sector leaders including Jane Stacey, deputy chief executive of Barnardo’s, Andrew Williamson, chair of NHS Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly, Hilton Dawson, chief executive of the British Association of Social Workers, Maurice Bates, interim co-chair of the College of Social Work.
Tickets to the Social Worker of the Year Awards will be on sale at the end of the month. Further details will be announced soon.
There is still time for practitioners in England to register their entries. The new-look awards have 12 categories for individual social workers, teams and departments in children’s and adults’ services. The final closing date is Friday 2 September.
