Staff at Vane Hill ARBD Home in Torquay are celebrating today after winning a prestigious Great British Care Home award for ‘Putting People First’.   The award was handed out on Saturday night at a glitzy award ceremony held at the Grosvenor Hotel, London.

The Great British Care Awards are a celebration of excellence across the care sector. The purpose of the awards is to promote best practice within both home care and care homes sectors, and pay tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work

Vane Hill made the national finals after winning the regional award last November.   The category seeks to recognise a team who have embraced the ‘Putting People First’/Personalisation agenda and can demonstrate an innovative approach to empowering people to have more control over the support they need in their lives.

It’s fantastic to know that the judging panel clearly recognise that the work our alcohol related brain damage homes do, enabling our residents is worthy of an national award.

The Grosvenor Hotel hosted the glamorous evening which was attended by all of the regional finalists across the country.  Supporting and attending the ceremony  along with Steve Todd, manager of Vane Hill and deputy manager Rosa Notaro were Mr Nunzio Notaro and wife Constance, Sam Notaro and partner Vanessa Barr, Immacolata Notaro and partner Dan Jacobs, Karen Notaro and Lee Todd.  The night was full of surprises and included 2 singing sopranos who got the whole place swaying and dancing and Jane Macdonald star of Loose Women, who hosted the awards.

The Category won by Steve and Vane Hill was second from last, so nerves had been running high throughout the evening before the announcement.  7 other finalist shared the category but on the night it was all about Vane Hill ARBD.

We are absolutely delighted for Steve, Rosa and all at Vane Hill and are extremely proud of this amazing achievement.
