SIRCC 2018 award winners

SIRCC Residential Child Care Awards 2019

Do you know someone working in residential child care who deserves recognition? Do they go above and beyond for the children and young people they work with?

The 10th Residential Child Care Awards is now open and we're asking those working in the sector to nominate deserving colleagues. The awards aim to celebrate good practice, strides in development, overcoming challenges and outstanding teamwork across Scotland.

For the residential child care workforce, it's time to celebrate your success in these award categories:

  • Shining Stars - showcase your inspiring ways of working within residential child care
  • Learning Leaders - share how you make the most of learning opportunities for staff
  • Breaking Barriers - recognise the importance of working together and creating connections
  • Top Team - applaud the collaboration, communication, and determination to improve the lives of children and young people 

This is a fantastic opportunity to thank partners and colleagues who have made positive changes for you and others.

Graham Bell Lifetime Achievement Award

Last year we introduced the Graham Bell Lifetime Achievement Award. Graham Bell retired as the Chief Executive of Kibble Education and Care Centre in 2017, having joined the organisation in 1993. Graham and his leadership style turned Kibble into a fantastic charitable trust and social enterprise and he has a long history of working with SIRCC and CELCIS, supporting and contributing to SIRCC conferences for many years. This new award aims to recognise individuals who have made a significant contribution to the residential child care sector in Scotland over a sustained period of time.

Care experienced children and young people can get involved too!

If you could nominate a residential child care worker, past or present, to be residential worker of the year 2019, who would you choose? What makes them extra special and super supportive? What big changes happened because of them? Or maybe there's a dream team of residential child care workers who've given advice, challenged you and encouraged you to reach for the stars? What about a 'Connection Keeper'? Someone who goes the extra mile to support relationships which matter to you in residential care.

Tell us! Share your story and theirs - we want to hear all about them!

The closing date for all applications is now Wednesday 10 April 2019. We'll be in touch with all applicants and nominees after the closing date to advise of the outcome and the awards will be presented at the SIRCC 2019 Awards Ceremony on Tuesday 4 June at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow.
