Bucks Council have won the silver award in the Digital Transformation category at the Social Workers of the Year Awards.
The award was given to recognise the efforts of the council in developing online tools to aid those thinking of fostering, adopting or partaking in special guardianship.
The council developed Adoption Ready and Fostering Ready to check eligibility and suitability of those wishing to adopt or foster and to give more information on the process.
The council was one of 18 award recipients.
