Social Workers urged to nominate for 2019 Awards

The Social Worker of the Year Awards deadline for accepting entries is 19th July

There is still time for social workers to be nominated for the Social Worker of the Year Awards, and BASW is urging social workers in England to get their entries in by the closing date of Friday 19th July.

There are 17 categories in total across children’s and adult services for individual social workers and social work teams in England. These include Social Worker of the Year, Newly Qualified Social Worker of the Year, Creative & Innovative Social Work Practice and Lifetime Achievement.

The ceremony will be held in London in November and you can view the award categories and nominate now!

The Social Worker of the Year Awards were established in 2006 to recognise and celebrate the achievements of social workers, promote social work and incentivise individuals and teams in the social work profession to achieve excellence.

BASW recognises the incredible personal and professional dedication social workers show every day by improving the lives of children, families and adults, and urges members and non-members to enter the awards.

Last year’s Lifetime Achievement award went to Peter Smith from Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council, who said: “I feel very, very proud to win this award, it’s a great honour. On a day-by-day basis you just do your job as a social worker, and I’ve enjoyed every day of my career helping other people.”
