How to Enter
The Social Worker of the Year Awards are about showcasing the best work in our profession and improving the reputation of social work.
We have a range of categories available, plus an overall 'Social Worker of the Year' that will be chosen from the winners of the other categories with the opportunity for both individual social workers and department teams to enter.
We have a high profile panel of judges for each category featuring some of the most respected social work professionals and leaders in the fields of children’s and adult social work. More information about our Judging Panel can be found here.
We encourage you to enter and help us to recognise and celebrate the successful work which goes on in both children’s and adult services. Once you have entered, please look out for news about our awards ceremony and remember to book your tickets!
The Social Worker of the Year awards are open to social workers and teams working in England. If you are working in Wales, follow this link to find out about the BASW Social Work Awards (Cymru/Wales) or in Scotland the BASW Scotland Social Work awards.
