Nathan Moore is shortlisted for the Dementia Carer Award, Jenna Sheehan for the Ancillary Worker Award and Angela McEwan, who can be found cooking up a storm in the Belong kitchen, for the Care Home Cook or Chef Award. In addition the Cedar household employees at the Millers Lane care village are potentially in line to scoop the Care Team Award.

A delighted Belong Wigan general manager, Gill Menguy, said: “Whether those shortlisted for an award win their categories or not, we are all extremely proud of their work, which reflects the extremely high standards for which we are known.”
