Launching our Dignity in Care Awards 2018 – Celebrating carers who go the extra mile

Lesley Flatley – Individual Carer Award

Last week I blogged about our latest campaign to encourage more people to consider a career in care. Running alongside this is our annual Dignity in Care Awards to celebrate those groups and individuals who go the extra mile for those they look after.

The awards are now in their sixth year and remain a popular recognition within the care sector. For the County Council it’s about making sure people get the highest standards of care and are treated with respect and for those companies and individuals nominated it’s a chance for us to say thanks and recognise their contributions.

This year we’re looking for nominations from both organisations and individuals, and both formal and informal carers of all ages. As in previous years, there are different categories including: Community carer of the year, Young Dignity Champion, Informal Carer of the year and Leadership award, so there’s lots to choose from.

If you know of someone deserving then why not put them forward for an award. The closing date is Friday 25 May so you have plenty of time. All the details are on
