“Every one of the organisations who the made shortlist in their categories should be very proud of themselves as they overcame serious opposition to make the finals.

“To be able to share the joy all of all our finalists in celebrating the great work they do is the highlight of my year, but more than that it shows that people who access care and support are being supported by some outstanding workers.”
