2022 Vocational Rehabilitation Awards

Help us to share some of the great Vocational Rehabilitation that you are involved with through our 2022 Awards  You can also make someone’s day by nominating them, we’ve heard just how much it has meant to our previous nominees.

As well as awards for VR team, project and practitioner, new for 2022 is the exciting VR Champion Award.

The VR Champion award is about acknowledging an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to enhancing the profile of VR in the UK. This would involve widening the reach and impact of VR practice through championing and/or promoting its development, provision and/or evaluation.  (e.g., through research and development; education; influencing policy; or promoting VR).

This award requires a substantially wider contribution than individual innovative or evidence-based individual practice and more extensive than any individual research or development projects, which are covered by the other awards. The individual must be a VRA member (with a current membership). This can be a self-nomination, or a nomination for someone else.
