Judging for the Social Worker of the Year Awards will take place in September 2018 where a panel of judges will decide on this year’s finalists and winners.
The judging panel is made up of:
- Leading industry professionals - invited to join the panel based upon their expertise within the social work profession
- Former care leavers and people who have received support from social workers
- Representatives from some of our sponsors (to avoid any potential conflicts of interest they do not judge the category that they are supporting)
- Peers and colleagues - we invite a select number of winners from the previous year to join our judging panel for a year
All judges kindly give up their time on a voluntary basis.
