Care Talk magazine are delighted to host the inaugural National Children & Young People’s Awards. These unique awards will celebrate excellence in care for children, young people and families, showcase innovation and best practice in this area and pay tribute to those individuals or organisation who excel in quality care provision.
““Grahams Consultants are really pleased to be the sponsor of The Children's Home Manager Award and support the 2020 Children and Young Peoples Awards. The role of the Registered Manager is truly worthy of celebration as they are a group of individuals who not only bear the burden of regulatory responsibility but are central to ensuring the best possible outcomes for the children and young people. My belief is that in order for the young people we care for to achieve their full potential, they must live in an environment that respects their individuality and diversity, offers them positive life experiences and enables them to develop positive relationships with adults and their peers. I strongly believe that a home should be child-centred in its approach to the way they work, and that for young people to grow physically, emotionally and spiritually they need to have positive role models who are able to protect them, guide them and plan for their futures.
In the work that Grahams Consultants does we are privileged to support Managers who run children's homes from across the country. We recognise the essential role that Registered Managers play in supporting the young people in their care and their staff teams. They also ensure that the multi-agency teams of social care, health and education professionals who create the team around the child are purposeful, nurturing and guide the young people towards the best possible outcomes. They are inspirational leaders who are often the unsung heroes for our looked after children and young people.
I will be really privileged to join with the whole care sector to celebrate the inspirational work of Children’s Home Managers.”
