A double win at Scottish Awards
Community Integrated Care were delighted to be recognised twice at the Scottish Social Services Awards, held in Glasgow on Thursday night (23rd November).
Judged and funded by the Scottish Government, and hosted by the Institute for Research and Innovation in Social Services (Iriss), the Scottish Social Services Awards celebrate innovation and best practice across the social services sector in Scotland.
Our Scottish services Chestnut Lane, based in Alloa, and our Old Edinburgh Road, based in Inverness, were jointly awarded the Excellence in Disabilities Award at the Scottish Social Services Awards. Judges for the awards praised their dedication to providing outstanding support and empowering people to live the best lives possible.
Funded by the Scottish Government, these awards showcase the very best in social care from across Scotland.
Regional Manager Clare Mcmurchie said: “We are so proud to be nominated amongst the very best in Scotland. To have not one, but two of our services jointly recognised for the Excellence in Disabilities Award is incredible. Both teams go above and beyond to ensure people live amazing lives and really advocate for the people we support. It was so special to share the win and celebrate the amazing contributions of our colleagues across Scotland.”
Sara Murphy, Community Integrated Care’s Managing Director for Scotland, said, “I am so proud of Old Edinburgh Road and Chestnut Lane for achieving the Excellence in Disabilities Services Award. Both teams have shown dedication, skill, and compassion beyond measure, and have made an enormous difference to so many people. Their commitment to supporting people to live independently in their own homes and enjoy lives full of choice and independence, is particularly exceptional. They are an inspiration and have made our charity very proud, bringing our vision of the best lives possible for the people we support to life.”
