Dignity In Care Awards 2019
Friday, February 15th, 2019
Carers play a crucial part in maintaining Healthy Communities, ranging from organised healthcare and care home teams, to the army of unsung heroes looking after family members in frequently difficult circumstances. When instances pop up in the news where the system falls short, they are a reminder of just how important it is to get care right.
It is therefore nice to be able to flag up the Dignity in Care Awards 2019, being held for the sixth time by Bucks County Council.
You are invited to nominate individuals, teams and organisations that have gone above and beyond to support you, your family or friends in a way that promotes dignity, respect and wellbeing. There are eight categories: Putting People First; Innovation Award; Learning; Community Engagement; Collaboration; Fulfilling Lives; Best Team; Most Improved Service; and Overall winner (chosen from all entries).
Information on the awards, including a link to the nomination form can be found here: https://www.buckscc.gov.uk/services/care-for-adults/dignity-in-care-awards-2019/
Nominations close on Friday March 8th. An awards ceremony will be held on 14 May 2019 at The Oculus in Aylesbury. On the web link above, you will find also information for potential sponsors of the awards.
