Melanie Weatherley, Chair of Lincolnshire Care Association, says:

“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. I meet brilliant care workers, nurses and leaders every day and they deserve their work and achievements to be celebrated in such a way. 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.”

Cllr Mrs Patricia Bradwell, executive member for Adult Care at Lincolnshire County Council, says:

“I’m looking forward to meeting the finalists on the night. The council is proud to have supported the Nursing in Social Care award, which will be given to someone doing such a vital job. It’s great that the Lincolnshire Care Awards will recognise the fantastic care workers that go above and beyond every day to give the best care to the people they look after.”

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

Finalists and sponsors will attend the ceremony on Thursday 22nd of February at The County Assembly Rooms, Lincoln from 7.00pm. There will be dinner and awards, compered by Melvyn Prior of BBC Radio Lincolnshire.
