Precious Homes Scoops Great British Care Award
04 Dec 2014
Precious Homes Ltd, provider of specialist support and accommodation for vulnerable adults, has been presented with a ‘Great British Care Award’.
The Great British Care Awards are a celebration of excellence across the care sector. Covering the statutory, independent and voluntary sectors alike, the awards pay tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work.
The ‘Arco Housing with Care’ Award was presented to Lisa Galloway, Registered Manager at Precious Homes Herts and Beds, at the Great East of England Care Awards ceremony. Lisa, who oversees support services at Oster House in Hertfordshire and Treow House in Bedfordshire, works closely with managers Tracy Keane and Jo Rodell to offer specialist community-based care for adults with learning disabilities, including those with autistic spectrum disorders and challenging behaviour.
Lisa commented, “The award verifies the fact that I have an extremely passionate and committed team who are dedicated to providing a five-star service. I’m really proud of the whole team – their support makes a real difference to the lives of our service users and their families. Although it is my name on the inscription, it is absolutely a team effort.”
Martin Green, Chief Executive of Care England, commented, “The Great British Care Awards have quickly established themselves as the most important awards in the care sector. The winners and nominees are some of the most outstanding people in care and the Great British Care Awards give them recognition that they deserve for their hard work and commitment”
