Children in Scotland shortlisted for two prestigious awards
Children in Scotland has been shortlisted for two awards at the upcoming Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce Business Awards 2024, which are this year centred around the theme of “grow, scale, succeed”.
The judging panel selected Children in Scotland for inclusion in the Service Excellence Award, and the Employer of the Year category, recognising the hard work of teams across the organisation.
Awarded to businesses committed to delivering the best experience and service possible, with evidence of customer satisfaction and endorsements, our nomination for the Service Excellence Award comes for the work of Enquire, Resolve, and My Rights, My Say.
Providing practical support, advice and representation for children, young people, parents and families throughout Scotland, in 2023, 100% of parents and carers who gave feedback on the Enquire helpline rated the service as “excellent”, while the My Rights, My Say team grew from two to five associates, highlighting an increased demand for the advocacy and support service.
The Employer of the Year award aims to recognise businesses implementing initiatives to benefit employee health and wellbeing, and Children in Scotland was shortlisted for the positive visions and values embedded into all our work, as well as our commitment to flexible working policies, on-going training opportunities, and our focus on work-life balance.
Winners across all 15 award categories will be announced during a ceremony at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) on Thursday 29 February 2024.
