As the 2014 Social Worker of the Year Awards open for entries, we are proud to reiterate our commitment to the awards, which have become the leading celebration of social work in England.

This is the fifth successive year that Sanctuary has been involved in the awards, and our contribution is more than simply providing sponsorship; our managing director James Rook is a Trustee of the Social Work Awards Ltd, the registered charity behind the awards. This means that we work closely with the rest of the organising team (which includes Professor Ray Jones, awards founder Beverley Williams and CommunityCare.co.uk editor Ruth Smith) to help organise and manage the awards throughout the year.

We see our support for these awards as the highlight of our year; not only are we trying to improve the reputation of the profession through increased public awareness, but we also want to motivate practitioners and create a group of ambassadors who are proud to stand up and represent their sector.   

James Rook said: “I am inspired by social workers every single day and it is amazing to be involved in a project which raises awareness of their achievements. Our commitment to the awards is growing every single year and we are delighted that the awards have grown significantly over the years.”

The Social Worker of the Year Awards 2014 will take place on Friday 28th November at the Lancaster London Hotel.
