Plymouth-Awards-2018--2 Plymouth-Awards-2018 Plymouth-Awards-2018--3

Last week, representatives from our South and South West region attended Plymouth’s Celebrating Excellence in Care Awards.

Sarah Ghent, Kerry Libby, Lisa Runnalls, Carla Dearing, Donna West, Karen Solt, Lucy Tempest, Steph Harris, Paige Marley and Kelly Floyd attended the awards evening.

The annual event, organised by Plymouth City Council, is held to celebrate the role of care workers in the city.

Restormel Terrace’s Steph Harris won an award for ‘Contribution to Care’, Steph was described as being the person whom the judges believed had made a long-term outstanding contribution to social care.

Steph was also interviewed at the event, which featured on the Plymouth Newsroom and can be found here: http://plymouthnewsroom.co.uk/celebrating-excellence-care-plymouth-2/

Karen Solt, Domiciliary Care South West, received an award for completing the ‘Leadership and Management Programme for Supported Living Services’.

Finally, our Douglas House staff team won the award for “Service User Involvement”.

Sarah Ghent, Locality Manager said “It was a wonderful evening and I am very proud of the team here in Devon, and the impact they have on the people that we support. It is great when the Local Authority recognise our fantastic work.”

As well as our three fantastic wins, we are delighted to have also had nominees in a further four categories: Kelly Floyd from Drake House was nominated for the ‘Contribution to Care’ award, Paige Marley from Victoria and Grenville was in the category ‘Deputy of the Year’, and both Lisa Runnalls from Douglas House and Carla Dearing from Restormel were nominated for the ‘Manager of the Year’ award.

The success continues in the South West as the Devon service managers have also recently been announced as the winners of ‘Outstanding Team’ in our Internal Awards.
