Cross Keys Care outstanding success in care awards

Cross Keys Care is celebrating having been shortlisted in not one but eleven categories of the Eastern Region Great British Care Awards.

The care arm of Peterborough’s largest housing association, Cross Keys Homes (CKH), has been shortlisted for Care Employer Category, whilst ten of CKH employees have been recognised in different categories.

The nominees will now go forward to a judging day later this month before the winners are announced at a celebratory gala dinner in November.

As the city’s leading provider of independent living solutions, Cross Keys Care combines supported housing with the latest technology in telecare, and traditional personal care to ensure older and vulnerable people are able to enjoy living the life they want to in their own homes. They also provide two extra care schemes in Peterborough, Kingfisher Court and Lapwing Apartments – which celebrated its official opening only last week, helping to provide independence of living in your own home, but with the reassurance of a little more support and care on hand.

Claire Higgins, Chief Executive of Cross Keys Homes, said: “It is really fantastic to have the hard work of our amazing Care team recognised by being shortlisted for awards such as these. Our Care team constantly go above and beyond for our residents and clients and it is wonderful that they can be congratulated for the amazing work they do, each and every day. It can never be said enough that the service they provide really does change lives for the better, and they do it all with so much passion, warmth and affection. I wish them all the very best in the judging day, and for these highly sought after prestigous awards.”
