The Great British Care Awards

THE sixth annual Great British Care Awards have launched, marking the start of the search for unsung heroes across the UK who dedicate themselves to excellence in social care.

The awards, sponsored by Specsavers Healthcall, promote best practice within the home care and care homes sectors, while recognising individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field.

Last year saw a record number of entries for the awards, with winners receiving recognition from key industry players at the grand final at the prestigious Grosvenor Hotel in June.

The annual awards support The Care Workers Charity, a registered charity for the care sector, involving current, former and retired care professionals. As well as individuals, the awards also recognise teams and businesses that have had a positive influence on people’s lives.
