FINALIST Residential Care Provider of the Year 2018

FINALIST Residential Care Provider of the Year 2018

Our recent achievements have been recognised with a shortlisting for the Residential Care Provider award, for our substantial new build programme and sustained focus on quality standards. Andrew Knight, managing director, said: “This is wonderful recognition for our hardworking teams, and their dedication to driving excellence for residents and their families.”

WINNER Public/Private Partnership of the Year 2017

Our ground-breaking project with Suffolk County Council to deliver ten new care homes for the county of Suffolk took the Public/Private Partnership of the Year award at the Health Investor Awards 2017.

The award judges commented on how Care UK’s innovative approach and commitment to quality and expertise in delivering social care, helped them beat off stiff competition from six other care providers to win the award.

A visionary approach

Over the last five years Care UK has invested £80 million in the development of ten new purpose-built care homes and day clubs, significantly enhancing the breadth and quality of services avai lable to older people in Suffolk.

The relationship has now been hailed as a shining example of how the independent and public sectors can work together to improve social care and bring much-needed investment into social care.

A winning partnership

Andrew Knight, Care UK’s managing director of residential care, said: “We are delighted that our partnership – which we believe is one of the most important and successful in the sector – has been recognised with this national award. Suffolk County Council approached us over five years ago and, after a competitive tender process involving over 20 different providers, our innovative solution was identified as being the most effective for the local area.

Winning this award really is testament to all the hard work that has gone into the programme by teams from both Care UK and Suffolk County Council”

In 2016 Care UK was also a finalist in the Residential Care Provider of the Year category.
