Entries open for 2018 Accolades

13 November 2017
Social Care Wales

Do you work in social work, social care, early years or childcare in Wales?

Entries are now open for the 2018 Accolades, the awards that recognise, celebrate and share excellent practice by organisations, groups or teams in Wales.

This is your chance to shine and share your achievements with colleagues across Wales if you work in any form of care and support in the public, independent or voluntary sectors.

For 2018, we are looking for initiatives that:

  • have had a positive effect on people’s lives
  • take equality, diversity and language preference into account when meeting people’s needs
  • support staff development, and 
  • encourage service improvement by, for example, introducing new models or increasing efficiency and effectiveness.

Sue Evans, our chief executive, said: “We are delighted that the Accolades are back for 2018. We know there’s lots of outstanding practice taking place in the social care and childcare sectors in Wales and we are looking forward to shining a light on those achievements once again.

“In 2015 the Accolades received a record number of entries and we are keen to receive even more for 2018.

“I would urge anyone who works in social work, social care, early years or childcare in Wales to think about entering. Similarly, if you know of great practice that deserves to be recognised, please encourage them to enter.”

The closing date for entries is 5pm, 9 February 2018.
