The Herald, one of Scotland's national newspapers, is looking for nominations for the 2018 Herald Society Awards to give recognition to the most dedicated workers and initiatives that have had the most impact across Scotland in areas such as health, education, and social services.
CELCIS is supporting a new category: the Improving Children’s Lives Award has been created to reward those initiatives, projects or services that have the needs of children, young people and their families at their centre.
Claire Burns, Director of Programmes and Services at CELCIS, who will be on the judging panel for this award, comments:
“People change children’s lives for the better every day. This category is a chance to celebrate the people who work tirelessly to put the needs of children and families at the heart of what they do.
“We are looking for initiatives in Scotland’s public and third sectors that have made real improvements and changes on the ground; changes for the better that have provided real value for children, young people and their families. Often this hard and complicated work goes unrecognised so it’s a privilege to be involved in the judging for this award.”
The Herald Society Awards have 13 categories in total, and the winners will be announced at a special event at the Marriot Hotel in Glasgow on Thursday 1 November.
Other organisations supporting the event include: evh, MacRoberts LLP and TSI.
Entry is free and you can enter multiple categories. The deadline for nominations is Tuesday 4 September.
