Welcome to our summer edition, which highlights the success of the 2019 Colten Champions and features a report of the awards night itself.
What a fabulous occasion it was and such a brilliant way to celebrate all the fantastic work that our team do on behalf of our residents every day. It really is a tremendous privilege to be among colleagues who truly embody our core values and consistently go above and beyond.
Colten Champions showcases so many amazing examples of our team supporting and caring for residents in ways that are so much more than ‘just a job’. Their pride and passion for putting residents at the heart of all they do really stands out. We can all take a sense of pride from that.
Now in its second year, Colten Champions is clearly proving popular with the whole Colten community. The number of nominations has doubled since the inaugural awards and we have seen a significant increase in those being sent in by residents and relatives. I would like to thank everyone who put in a nomination and, of course, congratulate all the winners and nominees. Here’s to next year!
Recognising team success is just one example of our social responsibility as an employer and care provider of choice. We also reach out to the wider communities we serve so we can play our part in them and ensure our residents retain links, many of them lifelong, with familiar people, places and organisations.
Community engagement was very much the order of the day when we officially opened our 21st home, Bourne View in Poole, welcoming many visitors from the area.
This edition of the Chronicle also charts the progress of our ongoing campaign to embed environmental thinking and action in every aspect of our operations, another essential aspect of social responsibility.
