Social care superheroes who dedicate their lives to helping people in need were celebrated on Wednesday (3 August) at the first Adult Social Care Awards.
The ceremony, hosted by comedian and entertainer Mr Cee, brought together inspirational keyworkers from the council and care homes across the borough in a special event held at Brent Civic Centre.
Guests included the Mayor of Brent, Councillor Abdi Aden, and Deborah Sturdy, Chief Nurse for the Department for Health and Social Care who gave the keynote speech.
Deborah praised the hard work and commitment of all the nominees, acknowledging the challenges they face, whilst recognising the real difference that care and keyworkers make to people’s everyday lives.
Councillor Neil Nerva, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Adult Social care, said:
“These brilliant keyworkers are the backbone of our society and our borough. Without them, hundreds would not get the vital social care support that they depend on, so it was wonderful to recognise their outstanding achievements.
