Clare celebrates trio of awards nominations!
Clare Mcmurchie, a Regional Manager for Community Integrated Care, and her team in Scotland are delighted to be shortlisted for three prestigious accolades at two of Scotland’s acclaimed care sector awards, taking place this month.
Clare leads 10 of our charity’s supported living services across Perth and Kinros, Clackmannanshire and Falkirk. The work of Clare and her teams is being recognised at the Scotland Excel Supplier Excellence Awards on 11th May at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Glasgow, where they are finalists for two honours, recognising innovation in social care services and outstanding customer service.
Clare’s extensive experience in social care is also being celebrated at Scottish Care’s Care at Home and Housing Support Awards on 19th May, where she has been shortlisted for the highly coveted Leadership Award.
Over the past few years, Clare has had a huge impact on the lives of the people she supports and been ‘a source of inspiration’ for her fellow colleagues. This hat-trick of award nominations recognises her commitment to supporting local people with learning disabilities to move from living in institutionalised settings, to living independently in their own homes.
Clare said: “I am blown away to be shortlisted for just one award, never mind three! It’s amazing to see the work that my team and I have carried out in the community, being recognised at two major sector awards ceremonies. For me, seeing people in their own homes and living the lives they deserve is the most important and rewarding thing. However, being shortlisted for the awards is the icing on the cake, and I’m so humbled and proud of my team.”
Linsey Gallacher, Community Integrated Care’s Head of Operations for Scotland, said: “We are so proud to see Clare shortlisted for the awards. Over the past 12 months, she has gone above and beyond, confidently leading her teams to ensure that local people with learning disabilities are supported to lead fulfilling lives.”
She continued, “Most recently, this has included supporting two individuals, who between them had been living in hospital settings for over 90 years, to move into their own homes. This is a phenomenal achievement and really showcases the determination, commitment and initiative that we aspire for across our charity. Clare is truly changing lives and is an incredible role model for her team and colleagues within the care sector.”
