There are many reasons to nominate for The Great British Care Awards.. but don’t just take our word for it. Here key providers from the sector tell us why they continue to support the sector’s premier regional and national event.
“The Great British Care Awards are by far and away the premier national awards for recognising the people in the workforce who day in, day out go the extra mile to deliver great care for some of the most vulnerable people in our society. Providing the opportunity for colleagues from all roles to enjoy a fantastic evening of high quality, black tie entertainment and celebrate together, is great recognition for their hard work and dedication.
Everyone who attends wants to strive hard to go again!”
Vicky Ridsdale, Personal Assistant, Anchor Hanover
“The Great British Care Awards are a fantastic way of sharing with the world, the amazing life changing work we do here at Cross Keys Care, and indeed the work that is being done across the whole care sector. It is also wonderful to be able to reward the hard work and dedication of our passionate teams and shine a light on the unsung heroes of care. To attend the Awards Dinner and hear the fantastic stories from other organisations just adds to the success of our sector.”
Mary Bryce, Director of Supported Housing and Care, Cross Keys Homes
“Continued Care supports the Great British Care Awards to show our staff how much we appreciate them and how we value the work that they do. It gives our carers the opportunity to get out of their uniform and dress up for a night of celebration, and to see other care providers also showing their appreciation of their staff. Winning an award raises our company’s profile within our local area and can be a great advertising tool. Even if we don’t win, being shortlisted is an honour in itself as it shows that the judging panel recognises the work we are undertaking.”
Mike Herrington, Area/Office Manager, Continued Care
“Other than being an incredibly fun evening out for our staff and the individuals we support, the Great British Care Awards allow us to thank, spoil and congratulate the wonderful work our nominees have done throughout the year. Being recognised and congratulated by the leaders in the sector for doing an outstanding job is not just deserved by those nominated, but also inspires them and others to do more, care more and ensure that every single individual we support get the happy future they deserve.”
Luzanne Fletcher, Marketing and Communications Executive, Happy Futures
“HSG is delighted to support the Great British Care Awards this year. The awards celebrate the very best in social care and recognise the selfless service of all in the sector.

“Nicholas James Care Homes and Regal Care Trading are proud to support the Great British Care Awards.
With 29 Nursing and Residential Communities we feel it is important to celebrate the social care industry and recognise those who work within it.
Since 2016 we have won 2 national and 8 regional awards. As a provider having the recognition from the awards has definitely given us another platform to showcase our company’s ethos.
Importantly the recognition our finalists and winners get is invaluable. Everyone is able to get behind and support their colleagues, which is such a positive outcome for all.”
Abigail Draper, Marketing & Services Development Manager, Nicholas James Care Homes Ltd & Regal Care Trading Ltd
“The Great British Awards have become an integral part of Vida’s calendar as simply nominating a member of staff boosts not on the individuals’ morale but the whole team.

Having been successful winners in the past we see the benefits throughout our business in terms of reassurance to our families that we have excelled in our service, and staff feel rewarded and motivated.”
