Put spotlight on unsung heroes

People who use services and their carers can nominate the unsung heroes of social services for an outstanding achievement award.

People working in Scotland’s social services do an excellent and exceptional job every day, whether they work in a nursery, care home for older people, in the community or a social work department of a local authority.

If you know someone who works in any of these services and want to help say thank-you, why not nominate your worker for the Outstanding Contribution to Care Award. The outstanding social service worker will be honoured at the Scottish Social Services Council Care Accolades award ceremony in June.

You can nominate workers online at www.sssc.uk.com, email enquiries@sssc.uk.com or telephone 0845 60 30 891 for more information. Closing date for entries is February 18.
