Elizabeth O'Dell Memorial Award

This scholarship award is in memory of Elizabeth O’Dell, a long-term BASW member and SWET Trustee, who was involved in practice education and who was a dedicated social worker, deeply committed to social justice and maintaining the dignity and rights of older people. This award is to enable practitioners, working within an established project, engaged in innovative practice that is designed and informed by principles intended to uphold the dignity and respect of older people, to share their knowledge and experiences with others. The award should be used by the successful applicant(s) to contribute to the training and development of practitioners, or the dissemination of best practice through the publication of a practice paper or article, running of a workshop, or a particular training event.
