@markybt @socialworkaward I've had some amazing experiences of social work so it's great to see the brilliant work happening across the country well done

@RobMitch92 @socialworkaward Such a wonderful event that all of us should be proud of. There’s always so much negativity associated with the profession that all the excellent, caring and compassionate practice often gets forgotten.Can’t wait to see the short lists! Got my fingers crossed for my Stockport 1s!

Finally finished judging applications for the 2019 @socialworkaward - just before the deadline!Overwhelmed by the absolutely brilliant work being undertaken by social workers across the country. Feel so proud of being part of this profession #SWA19

Is it just me or is the bar for submissions to the @socialworkaward being raised year on year? Seems we've had even more submissions for 2019? And the standard is higher this year (did I say that last year🤨). Almost impossible to judge but judge I have. Deserving of celebration!

Just got back from a day working on #mentalhealth tribunal, now typing super hard to meet deadline. So many greats social work applications to look over and judge; just remember, you're already amazing! @socialworkaward #socialwork #SWA19 #Ifyouwanttoseeamiraclebethemiracle

Judging completed for @socialworkaward The standard is so high this year, it’s almost impossible to judge. One thing is clear though- the quality of social work education & social work practice in many parts is excellent and needs celebrating!!
