HCPA Gold Membership event
On Monday 24th June, Alexis and Peter attended the HCPA’s very first Gold Membership event. It was an evening to celebrate the hard work and outcomes that have been achieved for the individuals who the Gold Members support.
The event celebrated the rewarding journey of becoming a Gold Member, how Gold Members are creating real change in the social care sector and how care practitioners and care commissioners can work together toward a better adult care sector.
There were a number of guests from the adult social care sector including Ian McBeath the Director of Adult Care Services in Hertfordshire, our elected Councillor for Adult Care, Richard Roberts and other Hertfordshire County Councillors, Hertfordshire's Care Commissioners, and leaders in the social care sector and this gave us the opportunity to speak to them about our hopes and challenges in the health and social care sector in Hertfordshire.
A presentation was shown which explained who we are and why we believe we have an organisation that stands out and we were presented our award by the Cabinet Member for Adult Care and Health – Councillor Richard Roberts and the Director of Adult Care Services for Hertfordshire County Council – Iain MacBeath.
We were delighted to learn that out of 550 providers who are members of the HCPA, only 14 are Gold Members, so we are extremely proud of this achievement!
