Shortlisted in the Scottish Social Services Awards
We are excited and honoured to be shortlisted in the upcoming Scottish Social Services Awards in two distinct categories. In the category of ‘Thought Leadership’ our Centre for Practice Innovation has been shortlisted for the work it carries out to harness and utilise the knowledge and experience of practitioners and the autistic people we support to inform and improve services. Since it was established in 2013, the Centre has launched a number of key initiatives to challenge and inform practitioner thinking within our services.
In the category of ‘Making Research and Evidence Real’ our Practice Research Team has been shortlisted for their development of a programme of practice research. The team facilitate practitioners and supported autistic people to undertake research, evidencing the most enabling support and developing a reflective, critical approach to practice.
Finally we are delighted to support the Scottish Women’s Autism Network (SWAN) who are shortlisted in the category of ‘Head Above the Parapet’. SWAN aims to provide a network for autistic women in Scotland, to identify strengths as well as challenges, increase confidence and maximise individual potential.
