Entries for the 2018 Social Worker of the Year Awards open on Tuesday 3rd April and will close on Friday 20th July. The shortlist will be announced in October.

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 in October 2018.
