Lisieux Trust are delighted to have been recognised in nine categories at The Great British Care Awards.

Acknowledging the individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence in the care sector, the awards take place annually, with regional events during November ahead of the National Finals in March 2023.

The team attended the West Midlands regional ceremony, which took place at the ICC in Birmingham on Saturday 5th November.

Our Head of Operations, Alison O’Meara was named the winner of the ‘Putting People First’ award for demonstrating an innovative approach to empowering people to have more control over the support they need in their lives.

Alison, who joined the team in January 2020, was also nominated for the ‘Outstanding Contribution to Social Care’ award.

The Trust was recognised in the Care Employer category and Kay Everton was up for the ‘Care Home Worker’ award.

Two of our other individual nominations came in the ‘Registered Manager Award’ category, where Mary Heap and Denise Barrett were both nominated.

Mary looks after our Francis House property and has been a key part of the team since 2006, whilst Denise has worked at the Lisieux Trust since 2007 and looks after Lisieux House, Bartres Bungalow and Vesey Road.

Lisieux House was also the focus for our remaining nominations, with Service Manager, Charlotte Atkinson up for the ‘Front-Line Leaders Award’. While Charlotte, Denise, and the rest of the Lisieux House team were nominated for the ‘Care Team Award’.

Speaking about the achievement, Charlotte said: “It was an honour to have been nominated for these awards. I’m happy that so many of the Lisieux Trust team have also been recognised. I get to see first-hand the great work everyone does for our residents and tenants.”

Lisieux Trust are very proud of all the passionate, committed staff that work for them and the excellent support that is given to the residents and tenants. Thank you all.
