Oxfordshire Care Awards 2020 – CANCELLED

March 27, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Oxfordshire Care Awards 2020

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we have regretfully cancelled the 4th Oxfordshire Care Awards, which was scheduled to take place on Friday 27 March 2020 at the Kassam Stadium, Oxford.

We have made this decision with a heavy heart, but feel that this is a responsible decision based on what we know in the current climate. Whilst the celebration has become a fixture in the annual local calendar, we feel that social distancing is important to protect your staff and to protect your clients and residents. Additionally, your time is best spent focusing 100% on your operational delivery.

We would like to thank everyone who sent in nominations this year – well over 100 were received across all categories. We are contacting those shortlisted and the list can be found here. Reading all the nominations is always moving and this year is no exception. There are many, many amazing individuals doing fabulous work in Oxfordshire’s social care sector and it has been an honour to read about them. As usual we hope to find out a little more once the results are announced and to share that through Talking Care, due out in September.

We will still be announcing Winners and Highly Commended, but we will do this in the 21st Century way – on social media. We will let you know more about this shortly. Later in the year we hope to find an opportunity to celebrate face to face. We are contacting all people who have booked a place at the Awards individually to make sure they don’t inadvertently turn up.

We will also be reporting to OACP Members via newsletter on our last year of activity including our financial report.

In the meantime, thank you for supporting the Awards again this year. It’s been a successful, new partnership with Age UK Oxfordshire and Action for Carers and feels like something we will do again next year. It’s not too early to start thinking of individuals and teams in your organisation who are making a difference and we’d be delighted to receive early nominations – we can categorise them later in the year.

I would also like to thank the terrific trio who have worked on the Awards;

  • Jane Wood – OACP
  • Tracey Desmond – Action for Carers
  • Sophie Dyer – Age UK Oxfordshire

You have all been amazing.

Thank you
Eddy McDowall, OACP
