Carer Friendly Award
Telford and Wrekin Council for Voluntary Service (CVS) and Telford and Wrekin Alzheimer’s Society have been given an award for taking steps to become a carer friendly employer in 2019.
The two organisations have pledged to continue to support employees who are carers to be able to continue to undertake their role alongside their work.
The award was given by Telford and Wrekin Carers Partnership Board after a group of carers reviewed the support on offer to carers from the two organisations.
Telford and Wrekin CVS have held the Volunteer Centre Quality Accreditation from NCVO for many years, our last certification achieved in 2017. Our Carers Centre Befriending scheme achieved Approved Provider Status with NCVO for the second time in July 2017.
In 2016, our work with volunteers in our Telford Young Carers project was formally recognised by The Queens Award for Voluntary Service.
The award is the highest accolade given to a voluntary group.
