The Great British Care Awards – Carnival of Excellence in Social Care, East of England – took place on the 28th of October 2021. The Great British Care Awards, consisting of a series of regional events throughout the U.K., are a celebration of excellence across the care sector. The awards also span Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. The true purpose of the awards is to pay tribute to individuals, whom, within their field of work, have demonstrated outstanding excellence.

With twenty-one award categories available for nomination, representing areas in the social care sector, from older people or specialist services to residential and home care. Individuals nominated are represented by frontline staff, including care workers and care managers, along with those who have made an impact in other ways including training and innovation.

The all-inclusive awards bring together the statutory, independent, and voluntary sectors along with unpaid carers, which in turn promotes joint working. At the heart of the awards initiative is a partnership with care partners and local care associations.

Aspirico Nomination

This year, Aspirico nominated Thera East Anglia for the Housing with Care award, an award that recognises a team that provides person-centred services to vulnerable people living in any kind of supported housing scheme. Aspirico nominated Thera East Anglia for their dedication to the implementation of iplanit care management software.

Thera’s vision for the people they support is for them to be leaders in society and involved in the design of their own support. iplanit care management software is a user-friendly platform that assists with person-centred planning while also capturing individual goals and achievements. The current digitalization project across Thera includes support plans and person-centred outcome tracking with a focus on streamlining accessibility for both individuals supported and their families. Future project goals include improvements to the existing support plan template, introduction of an end-of-life plan, and the rollout of digital logging of daily notes and logs. iplanit care planning software was chosen as the simplest and most effective way possible for management to evidence the outstanding work that is done in relation to supporting people to achieve their goals while also demonstrating Thera’s social impact to investors.

Congratulations to Thera East Anglia on their success, we wish them every success in the future!
