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.

Dale Elkin-Walker, Support Worker for Consensus, is in line for the Dignity in Care Award. Dale started her career in social care some 40 years ago and is an admirable support worker who inspires and empowers the individuals she supports. Her compassion, empathy and adaptability have enabled her to develop relationships built on trust and respect with the individuals she supports.

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