A team from Affinity Supporting People travelled to Birmingham recently for the final of the Great British Care Awards.
The ceremony, one of the most prestigious in the care sector, celebrates the great work being done, and the Affinity team were finalists in the Care Team of the Year Award, after previously winning a regional final.
While the team didn’t scoop the national prize, it was a great experience and we were able to cheer on our colleague Robin Eddleston, a senior healthcare assistant at Springhill Care Home, who won the National Dementia Carer of the Year award.
Jan Wilkins, general manager of Riversway Nursing Home, also part of the Springhill Care Group, was shortlisted for the Registered Manager Award.
It was great to see so many care professionals celebrating what makes the care sector so special – the people – and a big congratulations goes to everyone involved as finalists and winners.
