Dignity in Care Awards 2018
Islington's annual Dignity in Care Awards is now open to receive nominations. The awards celebrate the great work of staff employed in the care sector.
Who is eligible for an award?
Any member of staff working in the care sector employed either directly by Islington Council or in one of their commissioned services
What are the criteria for the awards?
The awards recognise the quality of support provided to people with care needs, with a particular focus on ensuring that anyone receiving care is able to retain their dignity at a vulnerable time in their lives.
Dignity is about treating people who need care with respect and enabling them to maintain the maximum possible level of independence, choice and control over their own lives.
How do I nominate someone?
You just fill out a nomination form and submit your completed form to either your service provider, or via email by midnight on 29 December 2018.
Anyone can nominate, but we particularly welcome service users, carers, family members, staff and partner organisations to participate and make sure we find the most deserving candidates.
Who decides who gets an award?
There is a judging panel made up of local leaders and stakeholders in Islington’s care sector, including:
- Age UK Islington
- Executive Member for Health & Social Care, and Deputy Leader of the Council, Janet Burgess
- Healthwatch Islington
- Islington Pensioners Forum
