Pauline Wood is November's Outstanding winner!
National Care Group's Outstanding Achievement Award Winner for November 2022 is Pauline Wood, Service Manager of our Church House Service in Maidstone
Pauline Wood was nominated by Tara Fewster, her Regional Operations Manager, for how she demonstrates such passion for empowering the People She Supports and how her work with them is always with the utmost respect. Three of National Care Group's values and behaviours.
Pauline has empowered a local family she met in the community to consider a supported living progression step for a relative with support needs, which is now happening thanks to the support, reassurance and advice Pauline gave them. This is just one positive outcome that has come from the passion Pauline shows day in and day out - now even recognised by a member of the local community.
Pauline is an amazing example of how our colleagues at National Care Group go above and beyond in their roles. Her dedication really impressed our Executive Team judges who scored her the highest for this month's awards.
