This week, we are following on from the spirit of Councillor Ogilvie’s blog on the recent Adult Social Care Awards for Excellence 2013, where he highlighted a few examples of the fantastic work that is being carried out by our colleagues and partners across the city.It is a fact that there are so many people out there (and you know who you are!) who work tirelessly to try and improve the lives of others, to ensure they are safe and that they can stay as independent as possible. If you’re reading this, the chances are you could recount the name of at least one person who does this without the need for recognition, for payment and because simply put, they feel it’s the right thing to do. We like to call them our unsung heroes. This week, we wanted to share some examples of how these extraordinary people have been recognised for making a difference to so many people’s lives. In the space of less than two weeks, there are two such people who have been recognised by winning two prestigious awards.
This week, we spoke to Annie Dransfield who is the Yorkshire Evening Posts’ Best of Health Awards Carer of the Year. Click here to see what Annie had to say about winning this award, and to find out about the exceptional things she does to make a difference to people’s lives.
Tomorrow we will be celebrating another winner so come back then to see who it is – you never know it could be someone you know!
