County’s care workers to be celebrated in special event

Thirty care workers will be recognised at a special event organised by Lincolnshire Care Association (LinCA) on 20 July.

Care workers who have completed training in management, mentoring and assessing colleagues for their care certificate will be treated to afternoon tea for their hard work and achievements.

The event is part of a programme run by LinCA and supported by Lincolnshire County Council, to upskill the care workforce, promote careers in care and improve the quality of life of the people who use care services.

Melanie Weatherley, chairperson for LinCA, says:

“This event is to say a big ‘thank you’ to some of the people who are doing such an important job and making a positive difference to the lives of the people they care for every day. Working in care is very rewarding though often brings its challenges too”.

Care workers from a variety of organisations across the county will be presented with their certificates by Cllr Mrs Patricia Bradwell, executive member for Adult Care. Cllr Bradwell said:

“There are over 19,700 people working in the care sector in Lincolnshire and the work they do is so important to the people they care for, their families and the wider health and care sector. It is great to be able to have an opportunity to personally thank some of the special individuals who are developing their skills to provide great care and leadership.”

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs just £27.55 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
