Nominations are now open for the Social Worker of the Year Awards 2023.

Alongside returning categories, the awards have introduced two new awards for 2023 – Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) of the Year and University Social Work Lecturer of the Year.

Each award category is judged by an independent panel of social workers, people with lived experience, young people who have been in care and leading figures from the world of social work.
