We had a fantastic time at the Social Care Accolades on 25 April organised by Social Care Wales! The event paid tribute to the inspiring work going on across the sector by recognising the dedication and impact of groups, teams and organisations in Wales.

 This year’s ceremony had five awards up for grabs, demonstrating the different ways that people and organisations can make a difference to lives across Wales. We supported the ‘Supporting Unpaid Carers’ award, which highlights the crucial contributions of teams and groups of workers who help unpaid carers. 

The awards ceremony at City Hall was attended by a range of social care professionals and organizations, including representatives from local authorities, care homes, and healthcare providers.
