It still hasn’t sunk in that I’ve won a national Great British Care Award! I’m glad I could do my colleagues and the West Midlands region proud.
My work is really important to me. I started as a volunteer at Harden Hall because I wanted to do my part and becoming a full time Team Leader was a special moment. This sort of recognition means so much to me and I’m really humbled by what the judges said about me and my dedication to the care sector!
