The Accolades are open to teams and organisations from the public, voluntary and independent sectors. They recognise initiatives that have had a positive effect on people’s lives, supported the development of staff and encouraged improvement to services.
The winners will be announced in a ceremony at Cardiff City Hall on Thursday, 13 September 2018, Arwel Ellis Owen OBE, Social Care Wales Chair and Chair of the Accolades judging panel, said: “We’re delighted that this year’s record number of entries has resulted in a strong field of finalists that show clearly the amount of outstanding practice that’s taking place in social care and childcare in Wales.
“Next month’s awards ceremony will be a great opportunity to highlight these excellent pieces of work and will provide a springboard for promoting excellent practice and sharing it with the rest of the social care and childcare workforce.
“As a result, we hope the Accolades will play an important role in helping improve services and have a positive impact on those receiving care and support across the country.”
The North Wales Safeguarding Board have been nominated in the following category:
Effective approaches to safeguarding (sponsored by Blake Morgan)
- North Wales Safeguarding Board – for its Self-neglect Protocol initiative, developed to prevent the serious injury or even death of people who appear to be self-neglecting, supporting their right to be treated with respect and dignity and “aiding recognition of situations of self-neglect”.
- Newport Children’s Services and Barnardo’s – for their Integrated Family Support Services project, which is resulting in a significant reduction in the number of children removed from their families and taken into care. The scheme provides intensive, multi-agency support for families “on the brink of care” and helps improve parenting.
- Pembrokeshire County Council – for its Junior Safe Guardians project, where young people help other young people understand safeguarding issues and keep themselves out of harm. The group has also run two safeguarding conferences to provide training and promote safeguarding to a large group of young people from across Pembrokeshire.
