Cornwall Care, Cornwall’s largest care provider, has been shortlisted for a clutch of awards for the quality of its care and commitment to apprenticeships.

The Great British Care Awards are now in their seventh year and are a celebration of excellence across the care sector, putting frontline care workers at their heart. Cornwall Care staff have been nominated in six categories in the regional South West finals later this month. The nominees are Julia Tyldesley, Care Home Manager category; Katie Dean, Front Line Leader category; Luke Bond, Home Care Co-ordinator category; Tania Williams, Ancillary Worker category; Sade Callaway, Activities Co-ordinator category and Natalie Hudson, Care Innovator category.

The winners of the regional Great British Care Awards go forward to the national finals in Birmingham next year.

Cornwall Care is also hoping for success in this year’s Cornwall Apprenticeship Awards in November, where the charity has been nominated as Apprentice Employer of the Year in the over 250 employees category. The awards are run by Truro & Penwith College.

Robert Black, chief executive of Cornwall Care, said:

“It is a huge credit to our skilled and dedicated staff to be nominated in so many categories in the Great British Care Awards and we hope to see them go forward to the national finals next year.

“Apprentices also make a vital contribution to our business and we pride ourselves in offering award-winning training towards a rewarding career, where a genuinely caring, sensitive and respectful approach is at the core of everything we do.”

Cornwall Care is also sponsoring the Inaugural Care & Support Awards at the Eden Project later this month. The awards are being organised by the Cornwall Adult Health and Social Care Learning Partnership.
