Over the Christmas holidays I had a look around to see if I might come up with some interesting news for the Neighbourgood and I came across the web site for the Great British Care Awards. Perfect fit! I did not know about these awards but guessing there might be something like it, I did a search on “Social Care Awards,” thinking that I might come up with some good examples of care and support services in the South East, and it paid off.
