Great British Care Awards – SJOG Finalists and a Winner!

At the Great British Care Awards 2023, North East and Scotland Region, we had a winner alongside finalists in two categories.   The awards ceremony took place on 9 November at the Grand Gosforth Hotel, Newcastle.

Our People Team were finalists in the Three ‘R’s award for the quality of the recruitment, retention and rewards in the charity, and Lee Scrimshaw was a finalist in the Care Home New Comer Award.  Lee works at Sandown Road in Billingham and is making a great contribution there.

Lisa Alcorn, our Chief Operating Officer won the Workforce Development Award which acknowledges the importance of the role of workforce development and looks for a person who has shown incredible enthusiasm and determination in identifying training and development needs of care staff. 

From one of the judges: “Lisa blew me away today with the passion for her workforce, for the things they do for their teams, and the funding they get for the amazing work they do. One of the things Lisa said today was ‘they care for people’, not older people, not younger people, just people.”

Well done everyone!
