Skills for Care CEO Sharon Allen said: “I think adult social care needs to be much better at celebrating the great things we do in our communities, and every one of our Accolades finalists are doing brilliant work to make sure we have a highly skilled and well trained adult social care workforce.
“Every one of the organisations who the made shortlist in their categories should be very proud of themselves as they overcame serious opposition to make the finals.
“To be able to share the joy of all of our finalists in celebrating the great work that they do, is the highlight of my year, but more than that it shows that people who access care and support are being supported by some outstanding workers.”
