Tracy Wharvell and Claire Gilbert from the Norfolk Care Awards team, say:
We are excited about seeing all the great practice from across Norfolk, we love organising this event and having the opportunity to say a big Thank You to all the unsung heroes, who support people to live their lives. We are delighted that Norfolk County Council continues to recognise the care sector’s fantastic workforce by supporting this event.’

We are proud to introduce the renamed Outstanding Achievement Award in memory of Harold Bodmer, the nationally acclaimed and celebrated Director of Adult Social Services in Norfolk who sadly passed away last year.

‘It is important to celebrate and share good practice, whilst recognising the passion and commitment of our care professionals in Norfolk.  I would encourage people to put themselves forward placing high quality care on the map’ says James Bullion Executive Director of Adult Social Services.

In addition, we are introducing a new category for this year’s awards – Collaborative Working, to showcase how health and care services work together to improve a person’s quality of life, or access treatment that avoids hospital admissions and delayed discharge. Examples of collaborative working are – care service and GP surgery or community health team and collaborative working between different care services.  We know there is lot of great practice out there and we think it is time to shout about it!

John Bacon, Chair of Norfolk Independent Care, says ‘The Care Awards sets Norfolk apart as a great demonstration of how good care can be recognised and valued, and a celebration of all the great work that is done, day-in and day-out by our county’s committed care workforce. We can all look forward again to a great evening.’

The Norfolk Care Awards, will take place at Sprowston Manor on Thursday 22 February 2018, and will be streamed live, to ensure everyone across Norfolk can celebrate with you.
