A project that aims to improve the quality of life of young carers in Gwynedd and Anglesey, a short breaks service for children with additional needs in Newport and a 79-year-old domiciliary care worker from Monmouthshire are among the finalists for the prestigious Accolades awards.
The awards recognise, celebrate and share excellent practice in social care and childcare, play and early years in Wales.
The Accolades are open to care workers at all levels, as well as teams, projects and organisations from across the public, voluntary and independent sectors that have made a positive difference in people’s lives.
This year’s finalists were chosen by a panel of judges made up of our Board members, representatives from partner organisations and people with experience of using care and support.
The winners will be announced at the Accolades awards ceremony at City Hall in Cardiff on Thursday, 27 April 2023.
Sue Evans, our Chief Executive, said: “We’re delighted we have such a strong group of finalists that showcase the amazing care work that’s happening across Wales.
“This year has been another difficult and challenging one for our workforce, but despite those challenges, we know our care workers are continuing to go above and beyond to provide excellent care for the people of Wales.
“It’s so important we take this time to say thank you to those care workers and to recognise and celebrate the fantastic care and support being provided every day in every community in Wales.
“Congratulations to the 15 finalists. I look forward to welcoming you all to the awards ceremony on 27 April, and recognising, celebrating and sharing your efforts and achievements, and those of the wider care sector.”
