We’re finalists for the National Care Awards!
Community Integrated Care is proud to have been shortlisted for two prestigious accolades at this year’s National Care Awards taking place this Friday.
Hosted by Caring Times, the awards celebrate the very best across the social care sector – from inspirational people and teams to exciting projects and partnerships. This year, we are delighted to have been shortlisted in two categories at the event.
Luke Dadswell, Advanced Support Worker at our charity’s Gilmorton service in Leicester, is amongst the finalists for the Carer of the Year award. Celebrating frontline colleagues who go above and beyond to provide outstanding care and support, this recognises Luke’s unrelenting commitment to colleagues and the people he supports, over the last 15 years.
Our partnership with technology experts, Okta, is also amongst the finalists for Business Initiative of the Year. The recognition acknowledges the incredible impact that the collaboration has had in creating aspirational opportunities for the people we support and promoting digital inclusion across our charity.
Jim Kane, Chief Executive Officer for Community Integrated Care, said, “We are incredibly proud to be shortlisted for two prestigious accolades at the National Care Awards. Ensuring equal access and inclusion is of huge importance to our charity, so it’s brilliant to see our partnership with Okta recognised for promoting digital inclusion and creating really exciting opportunities for the people we support.”
He continued, “We’re also very proud of Luke for being shortlisted for Carer of the Year. His commitment to the people he supports, his creative and proactive approach, and his camaraderie towards fellow colleagues shines through in his nomination – he truly embodies our charity’s values. We wish our two finalists the best of luck!”
Speaking of being shortlisted, Luke said, “I am completely blown away to be shortlisted for Carer of the Year – I couldn’t believe it when I found out. Working in care is my passion and there’s nothing more rewarding than supporting people to find their independence and achieve their goals. I’m really looking forward to the awards evening and want to thank my amazing team and everyone who has supported me in my social care career so far, and to the amazing people I support. They’ve taught me anything is possible and that with perseverance you can find away to reach your goals.”
Winners of the National Care Awards will be announced at a ceremony in London on Friday 24th November.
