Awards

The Old Vicarage has won over 30 national and regional awards over the last few years.

Josie and Carey fully appreciate their late mother Annie's belief in the staff working at The Old Vicarage, without them the home would not be the home it is today, therefore the home continues in the same manner by celebrating staff achievements and dedication by nominating them in local and national awards. Over the years we have had fantastic success and this has been really positive in regard to staff morale. It is just a lovely opportunity to be identified for a job well done in a sector that is often very demanding.

Annie herself was the very first Winner of Winners in the Skills for Care National Accolades, and was awarded an MBE in 2007 for services to the care sector in the South West.
