We were disappointed that we didn’t get any applications for our scholarship award in memory of Elizabeth O’Dell.
We know that this is a new funding opportunity that many people will not yet be aware of – so we’ve extended the deadline for applications to Monday 19th June 2017.
Elizabeth was a long-term BASW member and SWET Trustee, who was involved in practice education and who was a dedicated social worker, deeply committed to social justice and maintaining the dignity and rights of older people. The scholarship award is worth £1500 and is designed to enable practitioners, working within an established project, engaged in innovative practice that is designed and informed by principles intended to uphold the dignity and respect of older people, to share their knowledge and experiences with others. The award should be used by the successful applicant(s) to contribute to the training and development of practitioners, or the dissemination of best practice through the publication of a practice paper or article, running of a workshop, or a particular training event.
