The shortlist for the 2017 Social Worker of the Year Awards has been announced.

Over eighty individual practitioners and social work teams have been selected from a record number of entries.

For the eighth year, Sanctuary Social Care is supporting the awards as headline sponsor and category sponsor of the ‘Best Social Work Employer’ and the overall ‘Social Worker of the Year’ awards.

James Rook, Managing Director of Sanctuary (and a trustee of the charity which operates the awards) said: “I am delighted that The Social Worker of the Year Awards continues to grow each year, helping to recognise a selection of the life-changing work carried out by social workers each and every day, whilst helping to increase the public’s perception of this incredibly challenging and complex work.”

“The standard of entries was incredibly high and all practitioners who have secured a place on the shortlist should be very proud of their achievements.”

The winners will be announced at a ceremony in November.

A full list of those shortlisted is available on The Social Worker of the Year website.
