Who is Your 2019 Dignity Champion?

If you could publicly thank someone for the support they provided to you or a loved one who would that be…?

Bucks County Council are launching their 6th annual Dignity In Care Awards to search for the best of the best in the county and to help you say a great big thank you.

With thousands of people being cared for in Bucks by family, friends or professional health and wellbeing teams, there are always those who go above and beyond. Your job is simply to nominate and say what makes them special. (You can nominate here)

Noel Brown, Cabinet Member for Community Engagement and Public Health told us, ‘Reading about the Dignity In Care Award nominees is something I genuinely look forward to each year. Looking at previous winners, it really hits home the very many ways in which these unsung heroes provide the dignity and respect that people rightly deserve and expect.’

‘From my own personal experience I know that there are some who go well beyond what you would normally expect as a service. These awards are our way of recognising those who do go the extra mile and to say thank you. I really hope you take the time to tell us why a person or team deserves recognition so we can show our gratitude at the awards ceremony in May.’

‘We want to hear about who should be acknowledged in 2019 for being a true superstar!’

This year as well as asking the public to nominate in 8 different categories, the County Council want to make the ceremony even bigger and better and are looking for sponsorship from local businesses and groups to help put on a fantastic celebratory event on 14 May for all the shortlisted nominees.

Local businesses can find out how to show their support and get involved in sponsorship here or by contacting communications@buckscc.gov.uk directly.
