The Norfolk Care Awards opened nominations for the fifth year of the ceremony this month.

And along with the previous important categories, an outstanding achievement award will be presented in memory of Harold Bodmer, who died last year.

Tracy Wharvell and Claire Gilbert from the awards team said: “We are excited about seeing all the great practice from across Norfolk, we love organising this event and having the opportunity to say a big thank you to all the unsung heroes, who support people to live their lives.

James Bullion, executive director of adult social services at Norfolk County Council added: “It is important to celebrate and share good practice, whilst recognising the passion and commitment of our care professionals in Norfolk. I would encourage people to put themselves forward placing high quality care on the map.”

A new category in collaborative working was also added for this year’s awards to showcase how health and care services work together to improve a person’s quality of life, or access treatment that avoids hospital admissions and delayed discharge.

Chairman of Norfolk Independent Care John Bacon said: “The care awards sets Norfolk apart as a great demonstration of how good care can be recognised and valued, and a celebration of all the great work that is done, day-in and day-out by our county’s committed care workforce.”
