We are delighted to be finalists in the prestigious Skills for Care Accolade Awards.

Skills for Care CEO Sharon Allen said: “Adult social care needs to be much more confident about celebrating the excellence in service provision that happens day in and night out.   All the Accolades finalists are outstanding examples of how we can make sure highly motivated care and support workers can develop their skills and knowledge, which leads to high quality care and support for people in our communities.

“It is also a chance in the continuing tough financial environment for us to share knowledge of how we can find, retain and train people with the right values to meet increasing demand for care and support so everyone who needs it can access truly person centered care.”

Finalists in the Best provider of learning and development category, owner of Riccall Care Gill Conroy said:

 “We are very pleased that our experienced care training team has been recognized for their hard work and commitment. Kind, well trained and reliable carers are the cornerstone of our home care services and developing our care teams’ skills and capabilities is key.”

The awards ceremony where the winners are announced will take place on Thursday 10 March 2016.
