Queen's Award for Enterprise - it's official!

The official ceremony for Queen’s Award for Enterprise


Although we learnt that Home Instead had won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise last year, the official ceremony only took place last week and Alison was there representing the South Manchester office.

Home Instead is the first care provider to receive the award, which is the highest accolade available to UK businesses.

Making the presentation, David Briggs, MBE, K.St.J, the Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire said: “The Queen has been so impressed

with your single minded determination to give the elderly what they want - to cherish or dare I say to love and to truly care for them - and for that you are today presented with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

"Leading the Way in Providing Outstanding Care"

The royal achievement has also been recognised by Andrea Sutcliffe, the Care Quality Commission’s Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care, who said: “I am delighted for Home Instead on achieving this royal recognition. This is an organisation that is truly leading the way in providing outstanding care for the people they support.”

For Alison and Pauline, who went along to represent our CareGivers, it was a proud moment to have the hard work and dedication of the whole Home Instead family recognised in this way.

Once again, well done to both our office team and our CAREGivers. It’s their professionalism and commitment who make awards like this possible.
