Congratulations to our latest Regard Award recipients, who demonstrate the many ways in which they are living the Regard Values of ‘Compassionate Care’, ‘Excellence’ and ‘Hard Work’ as well as truly owning our Mission and Vision.
The award recipients are:
Carla Dearing nominated the Restormel House Team for their outstanding support of the following individuals:
GR - whose dream of working in a shop they made come true
RP - whose anxiety they reduced through their ‘always ready’ approach
JC - who they helped to have a smooth move into supported living
A special mention to Josh Griffin Maintenance Planner, whose incredible hard work has had a huge impact on the London, South East and East region, improving environments and helping to fill vacant bedrooms.
Charlotte was nominated by Kim Walshaw who said: ‘The word ‘passionate’ describes Charlotte, who fights for the rights of the people we support and who wants to see everyone in the staff team succeed. This isn’t just a job for her, it’s a vocation. Throughout recent times of change and significant events, Charlotte has been the glue that has held the team together, to provide consistent support for the people who live at Merrington Grange. Often Charlotte will go ‘above and beyond’ e.g. creating communication profiles, sequence strips, organising opening days - nothing is too much trouble if it improves the quality of life of the people we support.’
The Beudygwyn staff team were nominated by Gwenda Potter who wrote:
‘In the last 6 years we have gained better relationships with commissioners and families, and we are now recognised for our outstanding support and knowledge within the care industry. The staff team have worked so hard, giving their heart and soul to the service. Staff members ensure that they are up to date with all the information for each individual, and if they feel that more can be done they will research and source any additional support from external bodies.‘
A special mention to the Kingsdown House Team who were nominated by Linda Ribbands. The team impressed the judges with their many efforts to go the ‘extra mile’, including themed Elvis, Superhero and Railway bedrooms and a mocktail bar in the summer house, as well as the ‘happy buzz’ created by the innovative ways that they improve the lives of the people they support.
