We want to make sure you all know about the Norfolk Care Awards.  The Norfolk Care Award team are pleased to announce nominations for the
6th Norfolk Care Awards which are now open and the closing date is on the 16th November 2018.
Claire Gilbert and Tracy Wharvell from the Norfolk Care Awards team, says:
‘It is incredible to think this is our sixth year of putting on this event, which
raises the profile of working in care, and supporting people to live their lives.
We are humbled and impressed each year when we visit services – there is
some great practice in Norfolk. We organise this event to give something back
to the sector that we are both extremely proud to be part of, it gives us the
opportunity to say a big ‘Thank You’ to all the unsung heroes.
This event could not take place without the support of organisations who
understand the importance of the work undertaken in social care. We are
delighted that Gordon Barber Funeral Homes, Cozens Hardy, UEA, City
College Norwich, Athena Care, Norse Care, Libby Ferris Flowers, National
Care Association, Norfolk County Council, Ashton Legal, Anglian Training and
Boots recognises the care sector’s fantastic workforce by supporting this
event.’
Michelle from Cozens Hardy said ‘Claire and Tracy’s enthusiasm and drive to
recognise excellence in the care sector is utterly contagious! These awards
offer a wonderful opportunity for local businesses to give something valuable
back into their communities’
Norfolk County Council is delighted to once again support the Norfolk Care
Awards. We want to celebrate the great work carried out every day by
Norfolk’s carers and care providers. It is important to acknowledge the
expertise and commitment of carers and we are proud to be sponsoring two
awards: the Team Award and the Harold Bodmer Award. We have introduced
a special bursary, of £1000, for the award winner of the categories we are
sponsoring, which is for the further education and training for the award
winners and their organisation.
The Norfolk Care Awards, will take place at Sprowston Manor on 21st
