The past 12 months have been unprecedented in terms of the challenges facing industry and society as a whole. All of us have been affected in some way by the COVID-19 pandemic which has forced us to adopt new ways of living and working.
It’s been particularly challenging for those operating in the Health & Social Care Sector. Colleagues in all types of care settings have seen first-hand the devastating impact of COVID on residents, families and carers.
As we now begin to navigate our way back to some sense of normality, we would like to recognise and celebrate the work of these colleagues and the communities that have supported them and to that end, I am pleased to announce that we are launching the 2021 Suffolk Care Awards.
We will be inviting nominations from 14th June onwards and hope to see a high level of entries from across the sector this year. Following judging, presentations will be made at a high-profile awards ceremony at Wherstead Park on 11th November hosted by Shaun Williamson.
I do hope you will take the opportunity to get involved in this year's awards to showcase your achievements and those of the community who have supported you.
Suffolk Care Awards 2021 will be a great chance to shine a light on the sector and promote the positive work that you all do.
