After a huge increase in nominations and a brand-new award recognising the contribution of support staff. The awards were presented by BBC Radio Lincolnshire’s Melvyn Prior with each award sponsored by a local business or organisation.

Speaking at the event, Melanie Weatherley, Chair of Lincolnshire Care Association, says:

“I meet brilliant care workers, nurses and leaders every day and they’ve deserved their work and achievements to be celebrated this evening. The work they do in the county is so important and they are valued hugely by the people they care for, their colleagues and all of us who benefit from high quality care. The amazing work carers do isn’t celebrated enough so it’s an honour to host this event and recognise the great contribution of those from the care sector in Lincolnshire. “

Executive Director for Adult Care and Community Health and wellbeing at Lincolnshire County Council, Glen Garrod, said: “It was a fantastic evening and a wonderful opportunity to meet the stars of the evening: the people providing care and support to some of the most vulnerable adults in our County. It’s great that the Lincolnshire Care Awards provides an opportunity to give recognition to care workers and their managers that go above and beyond every day to give the best care to the people they look after, they’re doing such a vital job.”

Over a hundred people were nominated by managers, colleagues, residents and families, with the numbers being whittled down to a shortlist of 66 finalists.
