We are humbled and impressed each year when we visit services – there is some great practice in Norfolk. We organise this event to give something back to the sector that we are both extremely proud to be part of. It gives us the opportunity to say a big ‘Thank You’ to all the unsung heroes. This event could not take place without the support of organisations who understand the importance of the work undertaken in social care. We are delighted that Gordon Barber Funeral Homes, Cozens Hardy, UEA, City College Norwich, Athena Care, Norse Care, Libby Ferris Flowers, National Care Association, Norfolk County Council, Ashtons Legal, Anglian Training and Boots recognises the care sector’s fantastic workforce by supporting this event.’
