Julie Storey has been shortlisted for the Home Care Registered Manager Award, Lily Martin is up for the Home Care Co-ordinator Award and Leanne Luxford is a finalist for the Home Care Worker Award.

Colin Young, chairman of Care2Connect, said: “Home care is a growing need across West Sussex and the UK, and ensuring that the elderly or infirm can continue to live in their homes for as long as they want to is an important issue.

“We pride ourselves on promoting excellence across the care sector and it is encouraging that three of our personable, calm and professional team have been recognised in this year’s awards.”

The Great British Care Awards celebrate excellence across the care sector. Prizes will be presented at a gala dinner on November 9.
