We are involved in the following social care events.

Celebrating social care

The Accolades run by Skills for Care and the Department of Health took place on 25 November 2010. This year CWDC sponsored two awards at the event held at the Dorchester in London.

The evening saw well deserved recognition for those who work in residential child care and foster care settings, rewarding them for the difficult jobs they do and the many unsung successes that they have.

We were proud to be involved in celebrating the success of all of those working at the frontline and commend those who manage to exceed expectations in even the most challenging of circumstances.

'Most Effective Workforce Development across Partner Agencies'

The shortlist consisted of three really innovative and very different nominees.  We were proud to award the East Midlands regional partnership who worked together effectively to create an innovative online hub that provides full workforce data across public, private and voluntary sector partners for children's services in the region. 

'Best Quality Provision of Social Work Practice Placements',

The Isle of Wight Council won the award but recognition must also go to the other shortlisted teams: The NSPCC Practice Learning Team and The Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

The Accolades is an important opportunity to showcase the dedication and preparedness of the workforce to go that extra mile for our most vulnerable children, young people and their families.

Congratulations go to the East Midlands Partnership and to the Isle of White Council, but also to all of those nominated.
