Do you know an adult social care hero?

Care England wants to ensure the efforts of the adult social care workforce are recognised in this year’s honours. 

Social care staff are encouraged to submit nominations for outstanding practitioners and care workers from the front line who have gone above and beyond.

Care England said: ‘This has been a really challenging year for adult social care, and we have been inspired by the many stories of staff going above and beyond to provide the very best care and support during this pandemic.

‘That’s why we really want to help celebrate some of these exceptional staff by ensuring the immense efforts of the adult social care workforce are considered for this year’s honours and are asking that you consider nominations from your organisation, and where appropriate your membership.’

In light of current pressures, Care England has simplified the initial citations and asks that the following headings be used:

  1. What projects or work has the nominee undertaken that is outstanding? What impact have they had on patients/residents, colleagues or the wider sector?
  2. What has changed because of the nominee? Would this have happened without them?
  3. Were these activities part of their day to day paid role or in addition to it (including voluntary work)?  If it is part of a paid role, how are they going above and beyond what they are expected to.

To assist in the writing of citations Care Englnd is offering three guidance webinars which will be for 30 mins on the following dates.

  1. February 8, 13.30-14.00
  2. February 9, 10.00 – 10.30am
  3. February 17, 14.00 – 14.30
