Staffordshire County Council Dignity in Care Awards 2021

 

People across Staffordshire are being invited to nominate carers, work colleagues, young people, friends and family members for a prestigious award.

Staffordshire County Council have just opened up nominations for this year’s Dignity In Care awards.  The closing date for nominations is 28th May 2021.

The Staffordshire Dignity in Care Awards recognises groups and individuals who care for or support the most vulnerable of us, and who treat everyone with dignity, kindness, respect and compassion.

We welcome nominations from anyone who receives support and care in Staffordshire, their families, friends, or those who provide support and care to Staffordshire citizens.  We want to celebrate the achievements of as many as possible.

Do you know someone who has consistently gone that extra mile, someone who has made a difference, someone who has had an impact on the delivery of high-quality services? This is your chance to recognise them

Johnny McMahon, Cabinet Member for Health, Care and Wellbeing at Staffordshire County Council is also encouraging people to nominate someone for an award. Johnny said:

“Our Dignity in Care Awards are something we look forward to every year. They give us the chance to celebrate the best of the care sector here in Staffordshire and everyone who provides care.

“It’s an important event for the sector and everyone who works in it but last year’s and this year’s awards are even more special as we recognise those delivering care throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

“As in previous years, we are celebrating both organisations and individuals, whether it be an informal carer or those working in the profession. So whether you know someone who always goes the extra mile for someone they look after or a fabulous care company, then get them nominated.”

Anna Majkut, winner for Residential & Nursing Care Home Dignity Champion award last year, said;

“I always loved people, more than anything else and when I first started working in the care sector, it felt like a vocation. Working in care is a very rewarding profession, but it’s also a tough one.

“Being nominated for a Dignity in Care award and then being chosen as a winner made me feel incredible. I felt recognised, honoured and needed and I would now like to encourage others to nominate their friends, family, or anyone working in care for an award and to make them feel special.”
