Dudley Council’s adult social care team has been nominated for a national award for its work in the borough during the coronavirus pandemic.
The team has been selected as a finalist in the “Outstanding Response to COVID in Social Care” category at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards. There were more than 400 submissions across all categories.
The awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence in the UK health and social care services within public, private and third sectors.
They will be presented at a high-profile socially-distanced ceremony and dinner which takes place on Thursday November 19 at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, London. Councillor Nicolas Barlow, cabinet member for health and adult social care, said:
“We are absolutely delighted and over the moon to have been nominated for this award.
“I understand there were a record-breaking number of nominations so to make the final shortlist is really fantastic.
“It is national recognition for a team that has gone above and beyond to make sure the most vulnerable in our borough have been looked after and protected during the coronavirus crisis. Winning this award would be richly deserved.”
Winners will be announced on the evening at the ceremony.
