Care workers helping vulnerable Hackney residents celebrated at annual awards ceremony

Care workers across Hackney who provide care and help for vulnerable people in the borough, were celebrated at a special ceremony at Hackney Town Hall this month. 

Hundreds of care workers were nominated for the third annual Hackney Care Worker of the Year awards by their employers and the people they provide care and help for. They play a vital role in allowing people, who need care and support, to remain in their own homes for as long as possible, helping them to keep their independence.

Care workers also play a vital role in combating loneliness and isolation for older people with care and support needs, as they can often be the only person coming into contact with a resident every day or every week.  

There were two categories for this year’s awards including Care in the Community and Care in the Home. 17 care workers were shortlisted for both categories and two overall winners were given a trophy and certificate to celebrate their work.
