Entries for the 2017 Social Worker of the Year Awards are now closed. Judging will take place in September and the shortlist will be announced on Monday 2nd October. #SWA17

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 will be announced on 3rd October.
