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.
There are 16 categories in total across children’s and adult services for individual social workers and social work teams from across England. These include Social Worker of the Year, Newly Qualified Social Worker of the Year, Creative & Innovative Social Work Practice and Lifetime Achievement.
Last year's awards were held in London on Friday 30th November, where 17 inspirational social workers, teams and organisations were announced as winners.
Entries for the 2019 awards will open on Wednesday 3rd April.
On my way home after a brilliant night hosting the @socialworkaward. Well done to every single winner. It was such a privilege for me to be part of it. Thanks! #SWA18 - @AshleyJBaptiste
