On the 28th of November Christies Care celebrated a double win at the Prospers Essex Care Sector Awards, held at Chelmsford City Racecourse.

Continuing our run of industry recognition, Christies Care Director Lin Barnes won the Outstanding Leadership Award, and Team of the Year went to the Christies Care Training Team.

The prestigious Prospers Awards are run by Essex Council, with the aim of recognising the best and brightest in the Care industry.

“It was a great honour to be named as finalists, but winning really caps a great year for everyone at Christies.

Providing a top-quality team to deliver a great service to the people who depend on us has been our focus for nearly 30 years.

The drive and commitment of our training team to prepare our carers for the sometimes challenging, yet always rewarding roles they play in our clients’ lives, is really what sets Christies apart.”

Lin Barnes, Director & Registered Manager - Christies Care

“We all had a wonderful afternoon and both awards affirm the hard work that the company as a whole puts in.

To win these awards would not be possible without the continuous hard work and compassion of our wonderful carers and all the staff within Christies.”

Kerry Bayford, Training Co-ordinator - Christies Care

Just last month Lin was at St James’s Palace to  receive a coveted Princess Royal Training Award from Princess Anne.

Want to be a live-in carer with Christies Care?

We’re extremely proud of the excellent standard of care our carers give to their clients.

This is a result of our rigorous application and selection process. And the free, award-winning training our carers undertake, both as new carers to be and when they return yearly for their update training.

We offer the longest and most comprehensive training in the UK live-in care sector. And we’re constantly improving and updating so our carers are fully prepared and capable of facing the challenges of being a live-in carer.

This is reflected in our attainment of both the Princess Royal Training Award 2017 and an Outstanding rating from the CQC.
