What are the Accolades?
In 2020, the Accolades will be awarded to teams, groups or organisations that:
- have had a positive effect on people who receive care and support
- support staff development
- help improve services
- meet people’s equality, diversity and language needs.
Winning an Accolade showcases your achievements and is an opportunity to share your best practice and what you have learned with others.
Your work helping people who receive care and support achieve the things that matter most to them will also present a positive image of social care, and early years and childcare to the public.
WeCare Wales award
The WeCare Wales award is a new award for the Accolades 2020. It celebrates individual care workers in Wales who have a positive impact on people’s lives.
They could work in the public, voluntary or statutory sectors, they could work with adults, children or families. The main thing is that they help the individuals they work with achieve what matters to them.
Applications for the Accolades are now closed
We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who submitted an entry or nominated a care worker for the WeCare Wales award.
