Swiis Foster Care Scotland are immensely proud to be announced as the winners of The Investors in People ‘Third Sector’ Award for the second consecutive year, as well as being shortlisted for the ‘Learning & Development’ and ‘Management & Leadership’ categories. We are grateful that Investors in People have recognised the dedication we have towards ensuring positive outcomes for all of our stakeholders.
Our recognition for the ‘Third Sector’ category for the second consecutive year is something we are exceptionally proud of. This achievement is one which compliments a number of other initiatives that Swiis Foster Care Scotland operate such as the ‘Getting It Right For Every Child’ programme that Scotland has implemented. Our overall philosophy is to continually strive to achieve the best possible outcomes for all of our children and young people, whilst simultaneously ensuring that our staff feel supported, respected and genuinely valued.
We are gratified to be recognised for our progress in the ‘Learning & Development’ category as we continually strive to deliver the best possible outcomes and life opportunities for our children and young people by assisting them in reaching their full potential. As such, we are fully committed towards every sphere of development and learning for our staff, carers and children and young people.
We are further pleased to be shortlisted in the Management & Leadership category as our leaders aim to be role models by exemplifying our core company values of being “Caring, Understanding, Honest, Committed, Exceptional & Respectful”. We also encourage our children and young people to act as role models by supporting our local communities and mentoring younger children through schemes such as ‘The Young Champions Project’ .
In a record-breaking year for entries, with nearly three hundred organisations involved across a range of categories, our shortlisting for numerous awards and ultimate success in winning in the ‘Third Sector’ category has delighted our entire group of staff, carers and children and young people, all of whom significantly contribute towards our shared ambition of creating positive outcomes for the children and young people of Swiis.
