If you don’t already have your entry in then don’t panic! The deadline for entries for this year’s Care Accolades has been extended to Wednesday 13 February 2013 so you have time to enter your organisation, service or special project for the awards.
We want to hear from excellent social service organisations that are making a difference to the lives of people who use services, carers, workers and the public. The awards are open to all social service organisations across all sectors in Scotland, from the public, private and voluntary sector. Initiatives might be aimed at children in a nursery, adults in a care home or targeted at those who work with vulnerable or disadvantaged people in their community.
Now with nine categories, plus a Chair’s Award, Accolades will be awarded to services who demonstrate excellence in areas such as investing in the workforce, involving the community, innovative ways of working, and personalisation.
