Celebrating and promoting best practice; for the workforce and by the workforce

SfC&D partners holds 'Accolade' or similar award ceremonies across the UK every year to celebrate, promote and impart best practice in the sector. SfC&D was the first SSC to hold award ceremonies of this nature across the UK. Since the inception of these competitions, we have received thousands of nominations and presented hundreds of awards for excellent practice by the workforce. They are extremely well received, as are our follow up initiatives, such as workshops where the winners coach and guide those who need to improve in ways that make a real difference at the front line.

The ceremonies are approached slightly differently in each country;


Social Care Wales (SCWales)


Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC)


Adult social care (Skills for Care)

Skills for Care, (Adult Social Care England)


Northern Ireland Social Care (NISCC)
