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.
