Chief Social Work Advisor for the Scottish Government

I’m very pleased to support and be part of the 2020 Scottish Social Services Awards (SSSA).  This year sees the SSSA and the Scottish Association of Social Work Awards (SASW) join together to recognise the invaluable work carried out by those working across the social services sector, including local authorities, universities and third sector organisations. 

The Awards will celebrate the organisations, teams and individuals that make a real and positive difference in people’s lives.  We want to continue to encourage creative, fresh and innovative approaches that go beyond national standards, to make a difference for the people and communities they serve.        

With just a week left before the nominations close on 21st February, I hope that people will take inspiration from previous winners in 2018 and 2019 to apply or put forward an individual, team or organisation to continue valuing and showcasing the incredible work that is done across the sector.  You can help us to find and encourage the very best within the Social Services Sector by nominating someone today. 

This year’s ceremony will take place on 3rd June 2020 at the Hub in Edinburgh, with an evening reception for everyone who makes the shortlist.  I look forward to seeing you there.
