The Value for Money award recognises that Swiis Foster Care Scotland achieve the best possible outcomes for children, while providing value for money and innovative solutions. The award shows that we listen to our young people and actively seek feedback from other key stakeholders, which we use to develop and improve placement options.
The Small Business and Third Sector award acknowledges the specialist knowledge and efficacy of smaller businesses compared to larger competitors. The Swiis Foster Care Scotland team brilliantly demonstrate that the size of a company is not necessarily a barrier to successfully participating in national frameworks.
The Supplier Excellence Awards is the only award programme dedicated to the role of suppliers in public procurement, and celebrates the economic, social, and environmental benefits delivered for communities through the Scotland Excel contracts.
Scotland Excel’s Chief Executive, Julie Welsh commented:
“We are delighted to recognise the vital role of businesses that go the extra mile when providing goods and services through our contracts.
“It’s right and fitting that companies such as Swiis Foster Care Scotland which demonstrate excellence when supporting delivery of public services are applauded for their achievements.
“The standard of entries for this year’s awards was higher than ever. On behalf of Scotland Excel, I’d like to congratulate Swiis Foster Care Scotland on their well-deserved success.”
The team at Swiis Foster Care Scotland are thrilled at achieving these accolades in recognition of the work they do every day, ensuring our Foster Carers are supported in providing a safe and caring environment for children and young people to thrive.
Sam Arnott, Director of Swiis Foster Care Scotland shared her thoughts on the achievement:
“We are grateful for the recognition and remain committed to attaining the best possible outcome for our foster carers and the children they look after.”
