Caring Times, May 2014

Now in their fourth year, the NASHiCs Safety in Care Awards are reported to be going from strength to strength, recognising those who make a real difference to health and safety in the care sector.

The awards are open to everyone working in social care, members or non-members of NASHiCS, and nominations can be made between now and 3 June 2014.

There are four categories this year: Best Practice Award, Learning and Training Award, Company or Individual of the Year Award, and a special Ten Year Individual Award, recognizing ten years of the Association.

Winners will be announced on September 11th 2014 with an Awards Luncheon at the 10th Anniversary National Learning & Development Forum at the Kassam Stadium in Oxford. All award winners will receive an engraved plaque, certificate and £150 as well as extensive media coverage.
