Sanctuary has been headline sponsor of the Social Worker of the Year Awards for 10 years.
As a business, Sanctuary is social work-led, meaning it understands the challenges faced by the profession. Despite the inordinate pressure practitioners and managers face, there are some incredible examples of life changing work.
By continuing to support the awards, we’re shining the spotlight on a profession that does not always receive the praise it deserves.
As the UK’s leading social work recruiter, Sanctuary works directly with over 180 local authorities, Cafcass and voluntary sector social care employers. We’ll often work in partnership with Directors of Service to co-produce innovative social work delivery programmes. Therefore, we fully appreciate the commitment and effort that goes into providing outstanding social work.
Being an advocate for change and innovation, we love to hear about the individuals and teams who are discovering better ways to support vulnerable children and adults.
For us, there’s a direct correlation with our commitment to placing people first. The awards celebrate how the social work community is working tirelessly hard to do just this.
There’s nothing that makes us prouder than knowing that someone we have placed or a programme we have introduced is making a positive social impact.
Our most recent award win at the 2020 Recruiter Awards for Excellence where we were named ‘Best Client Service’ demonstrates our commitment.
We take our responsibility as a social work employer and business partner very seriously. We place the right people in the right roles so that they can do what they came into social work to do – make a positive difference!
