Dignity awards set to recognise best of county’s carers

People from Staffordshire are being invited to nominate carers, work colleagues, friends & family members for a special award.

The Staffordshire Dignity in Care Awards, now in their ninth year, launched today (1 February) as part of Dignity Action Day, a national celebration of the care sector.

The countywide awards are open to anyone who works in the adult care sector, care companies as well as informal carers. Award categories will recognise those who go above and beyond the usual high standards, placing dignity at the centre of what they do every day.

Julia Jessel, Cabinet Member for Health and Care at Staffordshire County Council said: “The Staffordshire Dignity in Care Awards give us a great opportunity to celebrate and thank the thousands of carers who do a wonderful job, always going that extra mile for the people they look after.

“If you know a brilliant individual carer, then please nominate them. Also, if you know of a care company or organisation who provide high-quality services that make a real difference then please get them nominated too.

“Our awards ceremony in July, where we’ll be announcing the winners is always a fantastic event. It’s also a really great opportunity to celebrate everyone nominated and working in the sector.”

In addition to partnering with the National Dignity Council and Newcastle College, this year the event is being run in partnership with Staffordshire University, the key sponsor for the event.

Nominating someone for an award is quick and easy and can be done online at Nomination 2023. People having difficulty making the nomination online can contact the Staffordshire County Council’s Care Market Development Team by emailing or by calling 01785 355 795.

This year’s awards ceremony will take place on Tuesday 18 July from 12noon to 3.45pm at Newcastle College, Performing Arts Centre.
