Seven individual staff and teams in Adult Services have made it on to the shortlist for the prestigious Great British Care Awards (West Midlands).
If successful they will go on to the national finals.
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 individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work.
There are twenty one awards categories 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.
Coventry’s nominations are:
Dolly Kirby- Housing with Care Award
Dawn Faulkner- Home Care Registered Managers Award.
Terri Hallinan – Care Home Registered Managers Award
Telecare Responder Service includes mobile night team: Home Care award
Elizabeth O’Grady: The Ancillary worker Award
Copthorne Lodge: Housing with Care Award
Eric Williams House: Care Home Team Award
Cllr Mal Mutton, Cabinet Member for Adult Services, said: “This is a fantastic achievement and I send my congratulations to everyone who has been shortlisted.
“The amazing and selfless work carried out by adult social care staff often goes unnoticed so I’m delighted Coventry’s staff and teams are getting the spotlight. I wish them all well.”
The regional judging takes place on December 8 with the national finals following shortly after.
April Ross, Service Manager, added: “Just to be shortlisted in an achievement so well done to all. Good luck!”
