Values Awards 2017
Excitement has reached new heights at Trinity Homecare this December! Not only are we in the festive spirit but the time to present our Values Awards is upon us! The
All of our managed care services are regulated by the Care Quality Commission, and we are very proud of our most recent inspection report which puts us in the top 3% of adult social care providers.
We had great success at the Surrey Care Awards 2018! We’re delighted that 5 individuals and an entire team were selected from a county-wide selection of nominations as finalists at the Surrey Care Awards this year: Kay Flint (Care Newcomer of the Year), Nicola Downs (Beyond the Call of Duty), Shona Kendall, Debbie Sutton and Claire Eaves (Frontline Leader of the Year) and Marissa & Team (Excellence in Delivering Dementia Care Award – Team Award).
Congratulations to Claire Eaves for winning the Frontline Leader of the Year award! Claire’s colleagues all shared their heartwarming stories and experiences of working with Claire and described how she “made me the Care Assistant I am today”.
Being nominated for a Surrey Care Award, being selected as a finalist and a winner are all astounding achievements and we’re so proud of every member of our Trinity team.

Three of our TrinityCarers were nominated for the ‘Beyond the Call of Duty Award’ – Pam Hatley was nominated for showing “empathy and compassion to all of her clients, fellow carers and whoever is lucky enough to meet her”. Hamdi Alihaje was commended for her “incredible presence of mind when a speeding car crashed through the front room of her client’s house” and Shona Kendall was praised for her “wealth of knowledge” which has enabled her to help social services with difficult circumstances. Congratulations to Shona for winning the ‘Beyond the Call of Duty Award’!
Our care manager for Guildford Di Yorke was a finalist in the ‘Care Manager of the Year Award’ and she was congratulated for supporting her team “to fulfil their potential”. Trinity Homecare was also a finalist for the ‘Innovation and Good Practice in Staff Recruitment and Retention Award’, for which we were celebrated for “working to provide an accredited training programme to build confidence” of our staff.
Trinity’s Eleanor Anderson was shortlisted for Care Newcomer of the Year in November. We regularly receive glowing tributes about our carers but Ellie’s contribution has been outstanding. She cares for a bedbound lady with dementia and the family cannot speak highly enough of her kind, intelligent and sensitive approach to her responsibility. And as you’ll see there are many similar tributes for all our care workers throughout the site. Trinity was also a finalist in the ‘Using Technology in a Care Setting’ category. We’ve pioneered the use of mobile devices and tablets, allowing us to update our care workers in real time. Better communication with our team means a better and more efficient service for our clients.
