Organised by Social Care Wales, the Accolades are a chance for those who work in any form of care and support in the public, independent or voluntary sectors to share their achievements with colleagues across Wales.
For 2018, the Accolades will be celebrating projects or initiatives that:
- have had a positive effect on people’s lives
- take equality, diversity and language preference into account when meeting people’s needs
- support staff development
- encourage service improvement by, for example, introducing new models or increasing efficiency or effectiveness
How to enter
The Accolades are open to any team, group or organisation that provides social work, social care, and early years and childcare in Wales, from the voluntary, private or statutory sectors. Your initiative can be residential or community-based, large or small. You can be working with children or adults. Good practice examples for the Accolades are welcome from any part of the sector.
The closing date for entries is 9 February 2018, with the finalists being announced on 1 June 2018.
The awards ceremony will take place on 13 September 2018, at the City Hall, Cardiff.
