We don’t know if they’re looking for adventure, but they’re all certainly getting some well-deserved high-fives as not just one, but five of our Pobl People have been shortlisted for Wales Care Awards from Care Forum Wales.

While it’s not that unusual that over the years, many of our colleagues have gained recognition as leaders in their field, it is pretty unusual for five of them to have nominations at the same time, in the same awards ceremony to celebrate outstanding achievements in care.

 Karen Rogers, Shauna Martin and Clive Sparrow from Llys y Seren were nominated in the Leadership and Management in Residential Care Services, Exceptional Newcomer and Commitment to Quality in Housekeeping and Hospitality categories respectively. While Sarah Crimmins and Paul Clements from Plas Bryn Rhosyn are in the running for Excellence in Catering and Commitment to Quality in Housekeeping and Hospitality.

The annual awards celebrate excellence across the Wales care sector and recognise each nominee’s outstanding commitment to the industry. For five of our dedicated staff to reach the finalist stage is a really proud moment that highlights the standards of service we aim to provide as a group with the positivity and dedication of our care providers.

With 670 care homes in Wales and the number of nominations in each category extremely high, competition for each award is stiff and our colleagues have really shown they have that special something to have reached the top 3 nominations.

The Wales Care Awards 2018 will take place at City Hall, Cardiff on 19th October 2018 where we’re looking forward to celebrating the hard work they’ve put in to get there.
