Heres a little bit more about the importance of social work…
Why celebrate social work?
Social work is one of the most demanding professions, but it is also one of the most misunderstood.
When the sector makes news headlines, it’s often for the wrong reasons, but for every negative story that we read about, there are thousands of positive ones that remain unheard.
This is a challenging and diverse sector and we believe that social workers should be recognised for all their hard work and dedication in helping to transform people’s lives.
That’s what the Social Worker of the Year Awards were set up to do – to celebrate the outstanding achievements of practitioners and teams up and down the country.
