Blakeney House Support Worker heads to Awards

October 16, 2018

Consensus are delighted to share that colleagues and teams across the organisation are shortlisted in seven categories in this years’ regional finals of The Great British Care Awards.

The Great British Care Awards are a series of regional events throughout England and are a celebration of excellence across the care sector. The awards pay tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work.

Amy Humphreys is in line for the Care Newcomer Award. She began her career in social care at Consensus’ Blakeney House in Westcliff on Sea, Essex aged just 21 with no prior experience and five years on with hard work, training and dedication, she is one of Consensus’ best Support Workers. Amy builds strong relationships with individuals which enables them to fulfil their potential and enhance their lives.

As a shortlisted finalist she will proudly be heading to a judging day in October and has been invited to attend a glittering Gala Event in November.

The following services and colleagues have also been shortlisted in a wide variety of categories:

  • Redan Street, Ipswich – The Home Care Team Award
  • Dale Elkin-Walker, Fieldbrook Walk – The Dignity in Care Award
  • Christine Sanderson, Vale House – The Good Nurse Award
  • Janet Burrows, Learning and Organisational Development – The Care Trainer Award
  • Charlotte Edwards, Cheshire House – The Frontline Leaders Award

We are also immensely proud that our Marketing Team have been shortlisted in The Putting People First/Personalisation Award.

There were twenty-one categories available for nomination, which represent all areas of the social care sector, whether it be older people or specialist services, residential or home care. 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.
