Individual staff members
Kindness and Caring - For individuals who have demonstrated outstanding compassion and kindness in their work. This award is for an individual who shows outstanding compassion and kindness in their work. They have clearly demonstrated all the behaviours that are in the Trust’s Values and Behaviours Framework and demonstrate empathy and compassion in everything they do.
Leading and Inspiring - This award is not just for those in a management position. Anyone at any level can be a leader and make a difference to service delivery. This award recognises a role model with integrity who creates a positive impact in the development of those around them. This is through their leadership style and willingness to help people to be the best they can be.
The 'Unsung Hero' Award – this individual is for an individual who might not usually be recognised but has demonstrated acts of kindness towards those in need. This individual has gone above and beyond the definition of their role with no expectation of pay, praise, or recognition.
