CHESHIRE WEST AND CHESTER COUNCIL have been awarded a trio of awards at the North West finals of the Great British Care Awards.
The Learning Disabilities team won the ‘Putting People First Award’ and were finalists in the ‘Team Care Award’ whilst the Workforce Development Team scooped the ‘Care Trainer’ category. Care Training Co-ordinator Angela Davies won ‘The outstanding Individual Contribution to Social Care’ to round off the evening.
The categories for the awards recognised ‘the abilities of a team to demonstrate a shared vision and agreed goals’ whilst demonstrating ‘positive and measurable outcomes for people through innovation and a clear personalised approach’.
Councillor Brenda Dowding, Executive Member for Adult Social Care and Health shared her congratulations. She said: “I would like to send my warmest congratulations to the individuals and teams on their successes.”
“Together with their colleagues, they make a positive impact on the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in our borough and I am delighted that their hard work and dedication has been recognised in this way.”
The winners of these awards in each region will next year contest for similar awards at the National Great British Care Awards next year.
