As in previous years, we are considering our applications to the Great British Care Awards. As you will be aware, there are a series of regional events throughout the UK that celebrate excellence across the care sector. The purpose of the awards is to pay tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work.
There are twenty one awards categories available for nomination. These represent all areas of the social care sector, whether it be care for older people or specialist services. And they cover residential and home care services, so that should bring the number of awards categories down for us!
The Great British Care Awards encompasses the personal achievements of individual carers and managers through to people who have made an impact in other ways like training and innovation within the care sector.
Nominations for this year’s Regional Awards close on 13th September. We’ll keep everyone up to speed on how we are progressing with the nominations as well as how we do. We know we have a great team (management and carers) and we look forward to celebrating their achievements.
