Lincolnshire Carers Quality Award

Working in partnership with other agencies to ensure maximum support is made available to people.

Every-One were commissioned by Lincolnshire County Council through the Lincolnshire Health and Wellbeing Board to develop and establish a Carers Charter / Quality Standards Award which sets out key principles in the recognition, value and support of carers and has become a recognised symbol of quality.

The Carers Charter Quality Award ‘You Care – We Care’ ensures that the profile of unpaid carers in Lincolnshire is raised and the invaluable and essential contribution they make is recognised enabling carers to live fulfilling lives combined with their caring roles. Undertaking the Lincolnshire Carers Quality Award to achieve the recognised quality award ‘You Care – We Care’ is a positive experience and strengthens organisational effectiveness and achieves recognition for the valuable way an organisation supports those carers with whom it works. It ensures the continuing development of quality approaches for those with caring responsibilities across Lincolnshire and beyond. Find out more >>
