Mathew Ninnes Winner of Outstanding Contribution to Care Award

6th June 2015

Congratulations to Mat who won the 'Outstanding Contribution to Care Award' from Care and Support West Awards 2015. Unfortunately Mat couldn't be there to collect his award so his work team did so on his behalf!

As a result of this Mat will be put forward as a nominee for the same category to the South West Regional event of the Great British Care Awards to be held later in the year.

The award was presented by Lynn Faulds-Wood who is a TV Presenter and Cancer Campaigner.

This nomination came from his manager who said the following;

"Mat has taken the time to get to know each individual well and develop positive relationships with them in order to be able to support them in their preferred ways. He ensures he treats them with dignity and respect at all times and also encourages staff to do the same. In particular, Mat has built up good working relationships with two people in the home and you can see in them both how happy they are to spend time with him. Mat will encourage independence in people never doing things for them they can do for themselves. He will patiently persevere and reassure the person, praising them for all they achieve no matter how big or small an achievement this is."
