Each year the ALLIANCE host the Self Management Awards which celebrate examples of good practice and promote a range of innovative self management activity that exists all over Scotland.
The Awards create an opportunity:
- To promote self management activity across Scotland.
- For people and organisations championing self management to spread their learning and promote their work.
- To provide learning of self management approaches across Scotland that can help feed into the development and delivery of services.
- For people and organisations to be recognised for their work around self management.
This year’s Award categories are:
- Self Management Project of the Year
This award will be open to the public for voting once judges have finalised the shortlist.
This award aims to highlight the success of a project and demonstrate the difference projects are making to build the capacity of self management in Scotland and improve people’s lives. If your project has made an impact to individuals, groups or communities then this is a great way to have it recognised and celebrated.
- Self Management Champion of the Year
This award will celebrate people who are helping encourage and inspire others to self manage and spread the self management message. Who do you know that encourages individuals to embrace self management? Who has championed ideas that add value to your work or life and encouraged self management? This award is open to everyone including staff working in health and social care, third sector, volunteers and community members.
- Self Management Resource of the Year
This award recognises the resources (on and offline) which add value to the lives of individuals, enable staff working in health and social care to deliver services more effectively and provide invaluable information, support and advice on self management.
- Self Management Partnership of the Year
This award is for projects working together in partnership to support self management in Scotland. We are looking for partnerships that can demonstrate how they build capacity and help lead change to self management support and services.
- Individual Transformational Story of the Year
This award is an opportunity to recognise the changes an exceptional person has made to their own life by taking a self management approach. Can you, or the individual you are nominating, demonstrate the transformation that has resulted from using self management? This award is open to everyone.
- Year of Young People – Self Management Award
To celebrate 2018 being the Year of the Young People, this new award will recognise an individual or group of young people who are helping change the culture to one that supports self management. Who do you know that deserves recognition for the work they are involved in or their amazing attitude to embracing self management? This is an opportunity to showcase incredible young people. This award is open to anyone from age 16 up to, and including, the age of 25.
