The winners of the 2017 Social Worker of the Year Awards were revealed at a glittering awards ceremony in London on the 24th November. Entries for this year's awards will open in April 2018.

Judging process

Each judge will be given one or two categories to judge, and after entries close they will be sent the entry forms for review.

 

The panel will then meet in September to discuss the entries to each category and determine a shortlist. We normally try to shortlist five entries for each category. Each entry will then be scored and Gold and Silver winners will be chosen for each category.

 

The shortlist of finalists was announced on the 2nd October 2017.
