Trust Women Recognised At National Awards
Everyone at the Trust is thrilled that we are finalists in two categories at next week’s Women Achieving Greatness in Social Care Awards.
Alison O’Meara , Head of Operations (pictured), is a finalist in both categories. Firstly, she is nominated for the Third Sector Leader Award. Additionally, she is part of another nomination for the Senior Management Team at the Trust, led by CEO Jess Alsop-Greenacre, Head of HR Joanne Bongiovi, and Head of Finance Carole Aston, as well as Alison.
Over 85% of the social care workforce is female. Many of these hardworking, dedicated, and talented women juggle the challenges of family life with their careers.
According to the organisers, “The purpose of The Women Achieving Greatness in Social Care Awards is to highlight and celebrate the incredible achievements of our female leaders in all roles and from all corners of the sector and create a platform to support our rising stars and future leaders.”
The judging panel is headed by Dr. Cecilia Akrise Anim CBE, former President of the Royal College of Nursing, carer of a child with complex needs, and disability rights activist.
Alison has won many awards in her career, most recently the Putting People First Award in the West Midlands for demonstrating an innovative approach to empowering people to have more control over the support they need in their lives.
