This award recognises the contribution of an individual care worker who strives to improve the delivery of care for those suffering with dementia. This person must demonstrate outstanding levels of commitment to care and put the person being cared for at the heart of what they do.

Sponsor's message

The past year has been incredibly difficult for our community, but if anything positive comes out of the last 12 months it's a new-found appreciation for our hardworking and dedicated health and social care workers – the real heroes of the hour.

In the early days of the pandemic we decided to prioritise key workers – helping them to keep their cars on the road. When you're under as much pressure as they are, car maintenance is the last thing you want to worry about.

Pebley Beach has a long association with the health and care sector. In 2019 we were the first firm from the automotive sector to partner with the Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, offering exclusive deals and discounts to NHS staff.

We also support unpaid carers in Swindon – sponsoring and match-funding Swindon Carers' Walk A Mile campaign every summer. We're delighted to have been able to continue supporting them through the pandemic.

Outside of selling and maintaining cars, our aim is to make a positive contribution to our town and to the physical and mental wellbeing of its citizens. That's why you'll often see the Pebley Beach brand associated with professional and grassroots sports, the arts, and charities that have a real local impact.

We're delighted to support Wiltshire Health & Social Care Awards to celebrate and recognise the vital work – under extremely challenging circumstances – done by our previously unsung heroes every single day.
