Nominations are now open for the 2018 Victorian Protecting Children Award. These awards are an opportunity to award dedicated individuals and teams who work to improve the lives of Victoria’s most vulnerable children, young people and their families.
This year, four new categories have been added to recognise child protection practitioners, including the ‘Rising star award’, an ‘Emerging leader in child protection award’, ‘Best new talent award’ and ‘Excellence in case practice support’.
The winners of the four new categories will be announced at the department’s Excellence in Child Protection staff recognition event on 4 September 2018. If you know someone who works tirelessly to keep children and young people safe from harm, or you want to nominate a team whose efforts deserve recognition, including you or your own team, then please nominate from Monday, 9 April 2018.
