Dignity in Care Awards 2015

Do you know a care worker who, or service which provides outstanding care?

OACP is sponsoring the Leadership in Dignity Award in this first cross-Oxfordshire social care awards.

The Awards are led by Age UK Oxfordshire and Healthwatch Oxfordshire, which are seeking nominations to celebrate and publicise where people experience great care in Oxfordshire and to recognise and thank individual champions of dignity in care.

AUKO and HWO are asking local people to nominate organisations, care settings, paid staff and volunteers who have gone that extra mile to deliver outstanding care for people of any age.

The Awards are the second part of Healthwatch Oxfordshire and Age UK Oxfordshire’s Dignity in Care project, which is investigating how well national standards on dignity in care are being met in the county and promoting action to ensure dignity and respect improves in all care settings.

If you have someone in your organisation who you feel deserves to be nominated for an award, please use this nomination form and send to [email protected]

For more information about the awards, visit: www.ageuk.org.uk/oxfordshire/dignityincare  or  www.healthwatchoxfordshire.co.uk/DignityAward.

The closing date for nominations is Friday 11 September 2015. The Awards ceremony will be in early November.

Let’s celebrate social care in Oxfordshire.
