People are being reminded that there’s still time to nominate work colleagues, carers, friends and family members for a prestigious award.

The Staffordshire Dignity in Care Awards, now in their seventh year, recognise the best of the care sector in Staffordshire. The Awards are open to care companies and organisations, anyone who works in the care sector as well as informal and young carers.

Organisers are keen to get as many nominations as possible for this year’s awards before nominations close on Friday 28 May 2021.

Richard Harling, director of Health and Care at Staffordshire County Council said: “Our Dignity in Care awards are a wonderful celebration of those people who provide the highest level of care in our communities. Each year’s awards are special but this years are even more important as we recognise those amazing individuals delivering care throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

“I’m extremely proud of our care sector and those who work in it, as well as all the informal carers looking after family members or relatives. Nominating someone is easy and it’s a great way to thank them for the wonderful difference they make. You’ve still got time to get your nominations in before the closing date at the end of May, so please visit the website for more details.”

There are 10 categories in this year’s awards, including Dignity Champion, Leadership Award, Student/Learner award and Informal Carer of the Year.

Nominating can be done online by visiting www.staffordshire.gov.uk/dignityincare People can also request a hard copy of the nomination form by calling 01785 355795 or emailing dignity@staffordshire.gov.uk.
