The winners

We had a special award ceremony at the Edinburgh Hilton Grosvenor for the Residential Child Care Awards 2018. As always, the standard of entry was extremely high and below you can find out more about the awards, and who the lucky winners were for this year.

Many, many congratulations to all the winners and runners up. You are super stars!

Graham Bell Lifetime Achievement Award

This year we introduced the new Graham Bell Lifetime Achievement Award. This award is in recognition of the commitment to young people shown by Graham thoughout his working life, and marks his retirement as as the Chief Executive of Kibble Education and Care Centre in 2017. Graham has a long history of working with SIRCC and CELCIS, supporting and contributing to SIRCC conferences for many years.

This new award recognises individuals who have made a significant contribution to the residential child care sector in Scotland over a sustained period of time and this year we were delighted to present this award to Edwina Grant, who has made such a difference to some of the most vulnerable young people within residential, family and foster placements over many years, using the Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) practice and approach.

Congratulations to Edwina Grant

We asked young people to nominate a residential child care worker, past or present, to be residential worker of the year for 2018 they were asked to tell us what makes their worker extra special and super supportive, what had they done to make a difference, or have big changes happened because of them?
