Recognising our commitment to innovation and excellence

We are only able to provide excellent standards of support to so many people thanks to our dedicated and talented team of support workers, specialists and managers. We’re proud of the great outcomes our colleagues help to achieve and we enjoy showcasing their work in national and regional awards.

We’re tireless about improving our services, both for the people we support, and for commissioners. Entering awards enables us to benchmark ourselves against competitors, enabling us to learn and develop. When we win awards we’re giving prospective families, new commissioners and even prospective employees the reassurance that we’re their best choice. Vitally, we’re also giving our teams and the people we support important recognition for their achievements..
