Home Care Provider of the Year

Leaders in Care Award Winners

Kingsway Care is proud to win UK Home Care Provider of the Year at the prestigious national Leaders In Care Awards 2022. This is a huge achievement for our independent home care company based in Brighton & Hove, especially as there are 10,950 registered Home Care Providers in the UK!

The Leaders In Care awards recognise the organisations that have led the pack in terms of providing outstanding care over the past twelve months, despite the many challenges they have faced.

Finalists for Three Awards

Last year, our founder, Olly Carter, won Executive of the Year for bringing his endless positivity, joy, and energy to the Home Care Sector. This year he wanted a win for the Kingsway Care Team, and we were thrilled to be finalists in three categories – Frontline Carer of the Year, Best Communications, and UK Home Care Provider of the Year. We already felt like winners but to win the Home Care Provider of the Year in front of our peers is incredible.

“Working in Social Care is such a privilege. Yes, there are serious challenges facing the sector, but we are determined to break down the negative stereotypes in the media. We support our Kingsway Care Clients to the highest possible standards and have so many good news stories that we are proud to share.

Why is Kingsway Care Home Care Provider of the Year?

My mum asked why Kingsway Care had won the Home Care Provider of the Year award and I realised a lot of people might not know how much effort goes into winning a Leaders In Care Award.

We had to submit examples of how we had transformed Clients’ lives for the better during the past year. Fortunately, we have a stack of Client Stories and five-star Client Testimonials to prove that our brand of first class home care with a dash of fun keeps Clients happy and safe at home.

Independent Judging Panel

The independent judging panel for the Leaders In Care Awards is made up of the biggest names in the care sector (see below). We are so humbled and proud to have been selected by such an esteemed panel.

Kathryn Smith, CEO of the Social Care Institute for Excellence

Martin Green, CEO of Care England

Vic Rayner, Executive Director of the National Care Forum

Heart, Vision & Values

We also demonstrated that Kingsway Care is a company with heart, vision, and values. From the start, we have been breaking down stereotypes of CareGiving being a stressful, low-paid, dead-end job. Kingsway Care focuses on developing CareGivers’ pride in their work and enjoying quality time with Clients.

This has attracted Clients looking for more than task-based home care and CareGivers that are empowered to add joy to home care visits or little adventures across Sussex.

CareGiver Recruitment & Retention

Recruiting and retaining the very best CareGivers, all of whom are shareholders, is crucial to expanding our positive business model to care for more Clients across Sussex. We are working so hard to reimagine how care at home should be and winning UK Home Care Provider of the Year is a credit to the entire Kingsway Care team.”

Vicky, Managing Director

We leave no stone unturned in finding and recruiting natural-born CareGivers in the local Brighton & Hove community. We have had great success in recruiting people from all walks of life, from a head mistress, performers, students, care professionals, working parents, and mid-life career changers.

Kingsway Care encourage CareGivers to bring their hidden talents to work too. From baking cakes, singing, photography or organising day trips, we want our employees to enjoy their work and develop their skills.

Of course, we pay above the minimum Brighton & Hove Living wage and have a comprehensive benefits package, employee shares, and bonus schemes to reward CareGivers for the important work they do.

Thank You

We are UK Home Care Providers of the Year for all the reasons above. Our Kingsway CareGivers & Clients are absolutely thrilled. Thank you to the judges and Home Care Insight for the recognition. It means the world to us.

Team Spirit

Congratulations Team Kingsway Care!
