Deputy Manager Charlotte wins Award
Consensus are delighted to share that Charlotte Edwards, Deputy Manager of Cheshire House in Greater Manchester won ‘The Frontline Leaders’ Award in this years’ North West 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.
Charlotte, who won ‘The Frontline Leaders’ Award has developed her leadership skills over the last three years whilst progressing her career from Support Worker in November 2015. She has balanced her development and the leadership role she now holds with ensuring she and her team provide exceptional person-centred support.

Responsive to changes in needs, recognising shortfalls and being adaptive to improve. Able to empower staff to step up out of their comfort zones and take leads on projects.”
Charlotte was presented with her award at a glittering Gala Event in Manchester last week.
Charlotte will join two more winners from Consensus from the East of England regional finals and go through to the National Final in March 2019.
