St Mary's Court Care Home, Braintree, Essex
The St Mary’s Court care home in Bocking beat off fierce competition from across England to triumph in the category of Most Effective Approach to Leadership and Management, at the government-backed Skills for Care Accolades awards.
The accolades, which reward companies who are committed to providing high quality care and developing their workforce, were held at a glamorous ceremony in Birmingham on the 10th March, hosted by Jennie McAlpine of Coronation Street fame.
Julia Clinton, the CEO of parent company Sonnet Care Homes, said:
“Skills for Care is the strategic body for workforce development in adult social care and we are honoured to receive this national award from them.
“The onsite leadership team at St Mary’s Court work tirelessly to ensure exemplary day-to-day support for residents, families and frontline workers, and we believe that they thoroughly deserve to be recognised in this way.”
