In an evening celebrating outstanding innovators and achievers in specialist care, Anchor’s Chief Executive Jane Ashcroft CBE won an award for her contribution to the sector.
Jane collected the Outstanding Contribution award at the prestigious Laing & Buisson Independent Specialist Care Awards, as part of a gala dinner at the London Lancaster Hotel last night (11 March 2015).
Speaking about the award, Jane commented: “I felt very honoured to be recognised in such prestigious circles. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my colleagues across Anchor – it is their passion, hard work and dedication that enable us to bring people happiness in later life.”
The award reflects not just Jane’s work for Anchor but also her time as Chair of Care England, as a current trustee of The Silver Line and campaigning for Government to appoint a dedicated Minister for Older People.
The judging panel featured representatives from influential care sector organisations such as the National Care Forum, Skills for Health, the National Care Association and Care England.
