Get your entries in for social care 'Oscars'


It's not just the awards season in Hollywood - Welsh care providers, teams and individuals are being urged to submit their entries for the Care Council for Wales' bi-annual awards, the Social Care Accolades.

The deadline for the awards in on Friday, February 4. The 2011 awards ceremony will be held on June 23 at Cardiff's City Hall.

Led by the Care Council for Wales, the bi-annual awards are a national showcase for excellence and celebrate good practice across Wales.

The Accolades, being held for the fourth time, will see awards for teams, partnerships and organisations who have transformed social care services by investing in the learning and development of their carers.

The winning work is then shared with other organisations in learning workshops helping to raise standards in the sector across Wales.

Winning an Accolade is a recognition of achievement and showcases best practice and the positive contribution the care sector makes to society.
