Accolades to recognise and celebrate Welsh Social Care

November 19, 2019

Social Care Wales has once again announced a series of awards that recognise, celebrate and share excellent work by organisations, groups or teams in social care, early years and childcare.

In 2020, the Accolades will be awarded to teams, groups or organisations that have had a positive effect on people who receive care and support, support staff development, help improve services or meet people’s equality, diversity and language needs.

Winning an Accolade showcases the achievements of individuals working in social care and is an opportunity to share best practice and learning.

The Accolades are open to any team, group or organisation that provides social care, and early years and childcare in Wales.

Judges looking for applications from every area – the voluntary, private or statutory sectors. The care and support provided could be residential or community-based, large or small. You can be working with children or adults.

Sometimes people don’t realise how impressive their work is, so if you know a project that’s eligible – no matter how big or small – please pass this information on to them and encourage them to enter.

This year’s categories expand many sphere’s of Social Care:
