Finalist in Awards Recognising Outstanding Work with Vulnerable Children

3rd October, 2016

FosterCare UK nominated for social worker of the year award

A social work team from FOSTERCARE UK has been selected as a finalist in the Social Worker of the Year Awards 2016 as a result of their outstanding work with vulnerable Children.

FOSTERCARE UK has been nominated for Best Social Work Employer of the Year prize and will find out if they have won at an exclusive awards ceremony that will take in London in November. FosterCare UK is one of 78 finalists across 15 categories and winners from each category will compete against each other to be named the “Overall Social Worker of the Year 2016.”

The prestigious awards ceremony is the leading celebration of its kind in the social care sector, and recognises the achievements and successes of the profession’s most innovative and dedicated social workers.

James Rook, Managing Director of the award’s headline sponsor Sanctuary Social Care said: “At a time when services are under such intense pressure, this award seems most relevant as it recognises those employers who put their staff first and demonstrate excellence in leading, motivating and developing their workforce. All finalists have proved themselves to be outstanding employers, which is an achievement to be very proud of.”

The awards were judged by leading influencers including the Chief Social Workers Isabelle Trowler and Lyn Romeo and Maris Stratulis (England Manager, British Association of Social Workers).
