Amanda on winning the Frontline Carer of the Year award “I am still feeling truly amazed to be chosen as the winner for Front Line Carer of the year Award 2021. To think of all the thousands of Great Care Staff that are out working in the community throughout  the pandemic and that I was chose as a finalist and then the  chosen winner felt very overwhelming indeed. The last 2 years have been very tough and when I look back I do not know how we all managed. We all worked together and battled on to please others without ever giving up. We have all had real tough moments and life has become a real challenge in itself every day but we all stay positive and keep looking forward to good times ahead.

 It has been very scary and upsetting through the covid pandemic watching others lose loved ones and losing those we care for. It has been very tragic at times and felt like we were taking on one challenge after another each day . This Award does make me feel like I have made a massive achievement in life and i will treasure that moment. I think we have all learnt by this how special it is to be a Care Assistant by making a difference to peoples lives every day and are proud to keep up the good hard work. and commitment. We have also learnt to treasure the moments we have with family and friends and appreciate good times together.  I would like to thank yourself and Sue for nominating me for this very Special Award. It was a very enjoyable evening attending the Awards ceremony and lovely to meet other committed care workers.”
