Last chance for Lichfield and Burntwood residents to nominate in care awards

Time is running out for people in Lichfield and Burntwood to nominate carers for a Dignity in Care award.

Staffordshire County Council is calling on people to nominate individuals, teams or whole organisations for the awards, which recognise people and services that put respect at the heart of everything they do.

Nominations close this Friday (January 28), with the awards ceremony taking place on March 18.

County Councillor Matthew Ellis, Cabinet Member for Adults and Wellbeing said:

“Treating people respectfully, giving them a choice in the care they receive, and ensuring they are listened to, supported and treated as individuals should be at the forefront of care. In Staffordshire we aim to recognise and celebrate those who do just that.

“I would urge anyone who knows someone who puts dignity at the very core of the care they deliver to nominate them for an award before the closing date on Friday.”

This is the second year the awards have been run by Staffordshire County Council, and already three times as many nominations have been received as in the first year.
