The awards ceremony for the Outstanding Care Awards for Devon and Cornwall has celebrated local heroes in the caring sector.

Frankie Rowe, our Hub Manager for Bluebird Care Exmouth won Gold for Outstanding Deputy. 

Kirsty Warren who is Registered Manager and Hub Manager for our Hub serving East Devon was awarded Bronze for Outstanding Community Manager.

The ceremony saw more than 300 people attend the sold out event at the Livermead Hotel in Torquay with Devon County Council, Torbay Council and Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust some of the organisations backing the initiative.

Frankie and Kirsty have both been with us for over four years and have been promoted through the business and achieved much success. It’s so good to see them being rewarded in this way and they should be immensely proud of their achievements.

Hundreds of nominations were received for the new awards, which were launched in February. Kat Green, co-founder of the Outstanding Care Awards, said: “It was a fantastic evening full of emotion. People who care are a special breed – compassionate and resilient. It was wonderful that they could be in the spotlight and receive the recognition they deserve”.
