Entries are now open for this year’s Skills for Care Accolades awards which celebrate outstanding service provision.
The Accolades were created by Skills for Care to recognise excellence and innovation in adult social care services.
Skills for Care CEO Sharon Allen said: “With adult social care now in the news every day the Accolades are a chance for employers to show off all the fantastic things that happen when you invest in your staff.
“Adult social care really needs to shout from the rooftops about how great our services are so the Accolades offer all our finalists a much deserved turn in the spotlight. I’ve seen for myself how it much it means for all our Accolades finalists to have national recognition for their teams.”
The 2019 awards categories are:
Best employer of under 50 staff
Best employer of between 51 and 249 staff
Best employer of over 250 staff
Best individual who employs their own care and support staff
Best employer support for your registered manager(s)
Best social care apprentice employer
Best recruitment initiative
Most effective approach to leadership and management
Most effective approach to integrated new models of care

The Accolades are open to organisations of all sizes, including individual employers, and you can find out more and enter online at http://www.skillsforcare.org.uk/accolades.
The closing date for entries is Friday 7 September 2018 and the winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in London in March 2019.
