Elizabeth Finn Care Homes were awarded the Care Home Employer Award at the recent Great British Care Awards event held at the London Hilton Bankside Hotel.
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 is to pay tribute to those who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work.
The 21 award categories 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.
Elizabeth Finn Care Homes won the London region award for best care home employer, proving to the judges that they are a well organised, and well-structured company with a strong ethos and proven practices in place.
The judges commented: “This is a strong, people-centred organisation who are committed to recognizing, valuing and retaining its staff.”
“We are absolutely delighted to receive this top award especially considering the high calibre of entrants,” stated Head of Marketing & Communications at EFHL, Alex Davies. “We have a very hard-working and conscientious staff, both in the care homes and behind the scenes in administration, who embody our goals and ethos in their everyday tasks.”
Chef Andy Hughes, at the Elizabeth Finn care home Rashwood, also won Care Home Chef for the West Midlands region, going through to the final in March 2023, and Megan Evans was Highly Commended in the Ancillary Worker category.
Elizabeth Finn Care Homes operates nine care homes across England and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the charity Turn2us. Founded by Elizabeth Finn, a pioneering 72 year old English woman, who set up the Distressed Gentlefolks’ Aid Association in 1897, originally based in her London home.
