Glittering prizes for services to social care

Posted on May 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

A number of high-profile people in the independent care sector have been recognised in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours list. Annie Sinnott, owner and manager of the Old Vicarage care home in Dorset is to receive an MBE for services to social care. The following well-known figures are to receive OBEs: John Graham, managing director of the ExtraCare Charitable Trust for services to older people; Des Kelly, director of the National Care Forum, for services to social care; Sheila Scott, chief executive, National Care Association, for services to social care. In the public sector, Rodney Brooke, chair of the General Social Care Council, is to receive a knighthood. _Caring Times_ congratulates the recipients of these honours, all of which which go some way in recognising the increasingly important role of social care in the United Kingdom.
