Our Award Success

We set ourselves high standards. Getting recognition for our achievements through awards is not only a sense-check of how well we’re doing, it’s also a great way to celebrate our success and showcase the outstanding work of our colleagues.

As a charity with strong values, we’re proud to pioneer new ways of delivering social care to stand out in our sector. In the past two years, we have won or made the shortlist for over 100 national and regional awards!

Here are some of the highlights of our award-winning team’s prestigious accolades.
