Spalding-based health and wellbeing charity Tonic Health has been formally recognised for its support for unpaid carers.
The Award ensures that organisations place high value on the identification, views and needs of carers and is awarded to those organisations who demonstrate that they meet the criteria for ensuring a high quality standard of service for carers.
The award is run by the Lincolnshire Charity Every-One and is funded by Lincolnshire County Council.
Vicky Thomson, CEO at ‘Every-One’ presented the award to the Tonic Health team.
Julie Goy, quality development lead at ‘Every-One’ said: “It has been a pleasure working with Tonic Health, supporting them to receive the Lincolnshire Carers Quality Award.
“The assessment panel commented on the commitment to support unpaid carers. We would like to congratulate the staff team on their dedication and commitment.”
On behalf of Tonic Health Michael Morris, chair of trustees, said: “We are delighted to have achieved this accreditation.
“The contribution the unpaid carers and volunteers make to the projects run at Tonic Health is invaluable and an essential part to the running of the groups.
“I am extremely proud to accept this award on behalf of all our volunteers and I am pleased the hard work they put in every day has been recognised.”
