We are proud to launch our 20th anniversary Kingsley Care Awards which are intended to showcase and reward the amazing work and dedication of our staff. The awards celebrate excellence in the quality of care we provide by recognising individuals who have made an extra special difference to the lives of those we look after. You are invited to nominate colleagues for their exceptional work or impressive attitude and can select one person in each category.
