Lincolnshire Carers Quality Award

'You Care – We Care'

Every-One were originally commissioned by Lincolnshire County Council through the Lincolnshire Health and Wellbeing Board to develop and establish a Carers Quality Standards Award. Continuation of funding through Lincolnshire County Council's Better Care Fund has enabled the work to develop and the award has become a recognised symbol of quality.

The Carers Charter Quality Award ‘You Care – We Care’ ensures that the profile of unpaid carers in Lincolnshire is raised and the invaluable and essential contribution they make is recognised enabling carers to live fulfilling lives combined with their caring roles. Undertaking the Lincolnshire Carers Quality Award to achieve the recognised quality award ‘You Care – We Care’ is a positive experience and strengthens organisational effectiveness and achieves recognition for the valuable way an organisation supports those carers with whom it works. It ensures the continuing development of quality approaches for those with caring responsibilities across Lincolnshire and beyond.

The Lincolnshire Carers Quality Award is going from strength to strength and numerous, wide and varied organisations are working towards accreditation and the request for and submission of applications grows weekly. Currently there are 205 organisations working towards accreditation. 

To see who has been successfully accredited with the Carers Quality Award, visit our Roll of Honour here.   

There is so much great work which is taking place in Lincolnshire. If you work with and support unpaid carers in Lincolnshire why not work towards the Lincolnshire Carers Quality Award and be recognised for what you are doing.

We want a County where carers are well supported in their caring role and flourish in their lives. We believe this is best achieved by working together with both carers and employers.

Case Study 1

"St Johns Surgery would like to take the opportunity to thank you for all your support in working towards our Carers Quality Award. The training left staff inspired and motivated to volunteer as Carers Champions.

Carers at St Johns Surgery are being held on a register, which has so far identified 124 carers in just a few weeks through publicity within the surgery, website information and via the practice newsletter. This work means carers now benefit from up to date information on how to access support. Their caring role is identified on their records and flexibility is being offered with appointment times. Feedback has been very positive from carers and patients are starting identify themselves as carers as a result of this work.

Your support in this has made a great difference to the surgery and its caring population.

Thank you - A H, Grantham GP Practice

Case Study 2

As a Carer for 19 years I was really impressed when I heard about the introduction of the Lincolnshire Carers Quality Award ‘You Care – We Care’ and I was also very pleased to be invited to take part in the assessment process.

I believe that it will bring about much needed commitment by Employers to provide recognition and support to people within their organisations who are Carers. I hope that this will not only relieve some of the great stress that Carers face in fulfilling their roles such as Carer and Employee, but also bring about an understanding of the daily demands and pressure a Carer is met with, when juggling their caring role with employment, education and other responsibilities of daily life.

Carers frequently have to give up their careers and employment in order to meet the demands of their caring role. In the future as more organisations join the Lincolnshire Carers Quality Award, I hope that more support and flexibility will be provided by Employers, improving Carers physical and mental health and enabling them to retain their employment.

I feel that this not only has positive implications for Carers in Lincolnshire, but as news spreads of the Lincolnshire Carers Quality Award ‘You Care – We Care’ other Counties may also be interested in developing it and more Carers, and organisations too, will be able to benefit.

Case Study 3

Julie was there for help, support, advice and guidance from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble for her.

The award is a valuable asset to the Practice as it proves and backs up the support that we offer to Carers and it has also helped us to identify additional Carers that may have been missed if we hadn’t done it.
