The awards are held annually to celebrate excellence across the social care sector in the region and to recognise and celebrate the contribution of outstanding teams and individuals. The awards also bring together the statutory, independent and voluntary sectors.

Liz added “Gateshead Council’s Adult Social Care service had two employees, a team and a nurse who works in one of its short stay respite centres, as outright winners at the North-East Care Awards ceremony. Congratulations and keep up the good work!”
