SPPC wins award

Categories: Leadership.

Congratulations to The Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care who has won the prestigious Voluntary Sector Partnership Award at this year’s annual Scottish Public Service Awards.

The award, sponsored by SCVO, is designed to recognise public and third-sector organisations working in partnership to deliver better outcomes in public services.

It highlights that these partnerships provide the day-to-day public services that support and care for people and communities throughout Scotland. And they are often lifelines for vulnerable citizens who could otherwise go unnoticed.

The SPPC won the award in recognition of its work to improve people’s experiences of living with serious illness, caring, dying and grieving in Scotland.

SPPC brings together over 100 partners from across Scotland, within the statutory, third sectors and independent sectors, including NHS Boards, hospices, HSCPs, charities, professional associations, social care and community groups. Partners bring money, expertise and a passion to improve experiences during the most difficult phases of life.

The award highlights that, over 30 years, quietly and with a low profile, SPPC has enabled collaboration which has led to service improvement, innovation, education, policy development, problem solving and education, within a domain that people often find hard to think about.

It also works directly with the public, enabling community-led action, public education and information resources.
