An East Anglian company which helps people to carry on living in their own homes has been shortlisted for a top award.

Consensus, whose headquarters is in Colchester, has been selected for this year’s category finalists for the 2018 Suffolk Care Awards.

The family-owned business helps more than 650 individuals in over 90 services throughout England, Wales and Scotland. Suffolk Care Awards acknowledges excellent care practice across the county.

Liz Taylor, Chair of Care Development East, said: “What has shone through this year is the enthusiasm and passion for caring and care in Suffolk. There are some great examples of care providers and individuals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.”

The awards final will take place on October 4 at Gresham’s, Ipswich where all 10 categories will be announced, with 28 Suffolk care companies and individuals selected.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.
