One of the highlights of the Social Worker of the Year Awards is our Parliamentary Reception, held at the House of Commons. It is at this exclusive event that the awards are officially launched for the year ahead by representatives from the Department of Health and Social Care and Department for Education. We also invite the Gold award winners from the previous year and our sponsors to be part of the celebration.
