The national awards bring together the winners from nine regional GBCA awards, held in Autumn 2013, to compete again to become national champions. The awards celebrate excellence across the social care sector and pay tribute to individuals who have excelled in their work. The Home Care Co-Ordinator award is presented to an individual who demonstrated to the judges their knowledge and skill in utilising their team in an effective and efficient way.
They were also able to show that they have a vision in motivating and supporting their team whilst ensuring the client remains at the heart of the service.
Home Instead Senior Care had six finalists at the awards, all of whom, like Mark, had won their regional finals. Its other regional finalists were Halie Richardson and Chris Garrard both from Barnet, in the ‘Care Newcomer’ category and the ‘Putting People First’ category, respectively, Amy Kennedy from Peterborough in the ‘Frontline Leader Award’ category, Angela Taylor from Durham in the ‘Care Newcomer’ category and Fleur Taviner from Bristol and North Somerset in the ‘Dignity in Care’ category.
Commenting on the award winners, Trevor Brocklebank, Chief Executive Officer of Home Instead Senior Care, said: “It gives me great pleasure to see the work our teams do across the country being recognised at such a prestigious event. My congratulations go to Halie, Chris, Amy, Angela and Fleur, who were very worthy regional winners and of course to our national winner Mark.”
