A caring Uttoxeter company could be in line for a national award for its work looking after adults with learning difficulties.
DE Healthcare, based at The Hub, at the Advance Business Growth Centre in Church Street, has been shortlisted for two accolades in the National Learning Disabilities and Autism Awards.
The care provider has been nominated for the Employer Award and client Polly Hale is a finalist for The People’s Award.
The gong is given to someone with a learning disability who provides support and encouragement for their peers.
Polly runs a tuck shop and teaches sign language at The Hub.
Staff, Polly and her family will be attending the awards ceremony at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham on Friday.
DE Healthcare managing director Tracey Fletcher said: “It’s a massive achievement for us to be nominated for one award, let alone two.
“This is a national awards ceremony with a lot of big names and organisations and we are delighted to be shortlisted for two extremely prestigious awards.
“Family values are at the heart of what we do and for the whole team to be recognised, which includes everyone from senior management, care workers, maintenance and the wider support network.”
