Michelle Dale, Registered Manager at Burley Heights, whose staff team won a Community Organisation Award in 2018 said “I am proud to manage such an excellent team at Burley Heights who support people in a way that really matters to them and the people close to them.

“Winning a dignity award helps us to celebrate the achievements of both the service users and the staff and shows the team just what a difference the work they do makes and that others think they are as amazing as I do! The whole celebration day is a wonderful event too, where we all get to hear some amazing stories and share best practice ideas that benefit the wider community within the care sector”.

If you have any other questions about the campaign or would like to be involved in other ways, please get in touch. if you would like to be involved as a sponsor, we’d love to hear from you. Telephone 01785 355795 or email dignity@staffordshire.gov.uk  or Alison.hasdell@staffordshire.gov.uk

We’d be very grateful if you could share the details about the Awards within your organisation.

We look forward to receiving your nominations.
