New Regions for 2019 – Wales & Northern Ireland!
The Great British Care Awards are a series of regional events throughout the UK and are a celebration of excellence across the care sector. The purpose of the awards are 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, which represent all areas of the social care sector, whether it be older people or specialist services, residential or home care. From frontline staff such as care workers and care managers to people who have made an impact in other ways such as training and innovation.
The awards are all inclusive, bringing together the statutory, independent and voluntary sectors, as well as unpaid carers; promoting joint working. Working in partnership with care partners and local care associations is at the heart of the initiative; working and linking directly with local managers and networks to further promote the event.
By nominating a colleague you will be supporting their dedication and commitment whilst also helping to raise the profile of the care sector as a whole.
“Being part of these awards is a huge privilege and pleasure. In amidst the negative press and focus on adult social care it is important to remember the hundreds of thousands of staff who give their all to ensure that those needing care and support receive it in a dignified, respectful and person centred fashion. Amongst the winners tonight we have some real shining stars who we rightly recognise both for their personal contribution, and for the positive light they create alongside the rest of the dedicated and professional workforce.”
