We are thrilled to have 14 members of our staff across Nellsar shortlisted in the prestigious Great British Care Awards 2020, for their outstanding service.
A series of regional events throughout the UK, The Great British Care Awards are a celebration of excellence across the care sector, focussed specifically on paying tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work.
There are 21 Awards Categories available for nomination, which represent all areas of the social care sector. From frontline staff such as Care Workers and Care Managers, to people who have made an impact in other ways such as training and innovation.
