Outstanding social workers are recognised through the Outstanding Social Worker Award (OSWA) for their consistent and professional contributions towards the improvement of social services in Singapore. This is an annual award conferred by the President of Singapore and hosted at Istana. The Promising Social Worker Award (PSWA) was introduced in 2008 to recognise up-and-coming social workers who are newer to the field but nonetheless have made a difference in the lives of clients and community alike.
