We are delighted to announce that our staff teams in the Plymouth area are celebrating after winning awards which recognised their dedication to care in the Plymouth City Council Care Awards.

The special event celebrates excellence in the city’s care sector and is a chance to showcase and acknowledge the best practice care in the Plymouth area.

Sarah Ghent, the Locality Manager for Devon, was the one who knew about the awards as she used to work for the council. She put forward the idea for managers to nominate their staff teams in the hope of recognising their dedication and hard work.

Everyone was thrilled when Enamul Hoque, Support Worker at Restormel House, won the award for ‘Best Newcomer to Care’. Since joining Regard, he has shown his compassion to care and just how much he enjoys making a difference to the lives of the people he supports.

Meanwhile, Donna West, Service Manager at Victoria and Grenville, and Carla Dearing, Service Manager at Restormel House, were both given an award in recognition for completing Plymouth City Council’s Leadership and Management Programme in 2016/17.

Finally, Sue Johnson, Support Worker at Douglas House, was up for the ‘Devotion to Care’ award, she did not win the award, however, the judging panel were so impressed with her nomination that they recognised her devotion to care with a special award.

Sarah said: “As you can imagine both Sue and Enamul were surprised and overjoyed at winning an award and receiving recognition for the work that they do. As locality manager, I was extremely proud of them all and it was a privilege to share their success and represent The Regard Group.”

The team were also congratulated by Sandie Foxall-Smith, CEO, who said: “What a fabulous result. Well done all – a great recognition for all your hard work.”
