Staffordshire Dignity in Care Awards update

People across Staffordshire are being invited to nominate carers, work colleagues, young people, friends and family members for a prestigious award. The Staffordshire Dignity in Care Awards, now in their 6th year, recognises groups and individuals who care for or support the most vulnerable of us, and who treat everyone with dignity and compassion.

The County Council will welcome nominations from anyone who receives support and care in Staffordshire, their families, friends, or those who provide support and care to Staffordshire citizens.

Nominations have been open since National Dignity Day (1st February) and will remain open for members of the public until 31st July. If you know someone going above and beyond in their care for others, including this extremely challenging period, we would love to hear from you and look forward to hearing about the difference they have been making to people’s lives.

The current Covid-19 pandemic has, inevitably, resulted in some changes to the Awards this year and led to the postponement of the awards ceremony that was originally due to be held in July; it is hoped to rearrange this for the earliest opportunity. In the meantime, all nominations the County Council has received so far will remain active until the closing date.

How do I nominate?

Please use the nomination form to nominate someone for a Dignity Award – it’s quick and easy to do. If you have any questions, or you would prefer to make a nomination in a different format, please contact Alison Hasdell at alison.hasdell@staffordshire.gov.uk or  dignity@staffordshire.gov.uk
