Achieve together receive two Highly Commended Awards at the GBCA

We’re thrilled to win two Highly Commended Awards at the Great British Care Awards in the South East.

We are very pleased to announce that two of our team members were successful at the recent GBCA Regional Awards held in Brighton. What a fantastic achievement and many congratulations to you both.

Joseph Scaife, Support Worker at Middle Gordon Road, received a Highly Commended Care Home Newcomer Award.

Joseph joined Achieve together with little background in care, but got stuck in immediately, reading through all policies and completing his e-learning before he’d even started work. This proactivity and enthusiasm quickly became a hallmark of Joseph’s working style, approaching every task with positivity and energy.

Joseph quickly built relationships with the people Achieve together supports. He was unafraid to tackle more challenging aspects of care provision. During Covid, Joseph ensured those he supported continued to be engaged, planning a host of new activities

Joseph is currently undertaking his NVQ Level 3 and hopes to be a manager one day. He has made a real impact in his service and to the people he support.

Many congratulations on this tremendous achievement.

Stephanie Whalley, Home Manager at Wren Park, received a Highly Commented Outstanding Contribution to Social Care Award.

Stephanie is an exceptional manager with significant experience and a very in-depth knowledge of the industry.

She has high aspirations and strives to really make a difference to the lives of the people we support. She has a clear goal of leaving this industry in a far better situation than when she first entered, not that we are pleased to add she has any plans to do so just yet!

Stephanie is very highly regarded by her team and she takes the time to ensure they are probably mentored and supported so they feel confident in approaching situations and making decision. She also works with them all on personal development so they can progress and develop accordingly.

What a fabulous result, well done Stephanie!
