In 2011, IRISS sponsored the SSSC Care Accolades Innovation Award which celebrated ideas, new thinking and ways of working in Scotland's social services. Supporting thinking differently is one of the key objectives of the Innovation and Improvement programme. We want to ensure that the innovation running through the social services is recognised and rewarded.
The winner of the 2011 Innovation Care Accolade was Barnardo's Scotland's You First. As the winner of this prestigious award, they have been awarded several days of support from the Innovation and Improvement team. For more information please see Embedding Innovation.
