Extra Care Home Services in North Walsham has been nominated for a Skills for Care Accolades award that celebrates the outstanding achievements of the very best adult social care employers in England.
They have been nominated in the Best Employer under 50 category which recognises Extra Care Home Services for the work it does in supporting the people who access their services.
The business provides practical and personal care support to individuals in their own homes in the North Walsham area. They won two awards last year at the Norfolk Care Awards 2017 for Motivational Leadership and Rising Star and this year they are also shortlisted finalist in the category Excellent Person Centred Care and Support and will find out if they have won at the Gala Night at Sprowston Manor on February 22.
Sarah Thompson, owner and registered manager said: “When we found out that we had made the final of the Skills for Care Accolades we were delighted because it is a reward on a national stage for all our team, and the hard work they put in to make sure we offer high quality services for the people we work with.
“It is a recognition that our investment in the development of the people who work for us has paid off, and for all the hard work people put into making sure they have the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to do a great job. It is amazing to be recognised at National level for the work we believe so passionately in. We are up against a care home from Essex and a home care company based in the Bournemouth area.”
Skills for Care has been hosting the Accolades awards for the last 14 years honouring hundreds of organisations who all share a genuine commitment to developing the skills and knowledge of their workforce.
They will find if they have won at the Skills for Care Accolades awards night in London on Thursday, March 1.
