Our Bolton Cares Awards 2017 shortlist

Thank you to everyone who has nominated our staff for our first Bolton Cares Awards. We’ve received around 100 nominations and from these nominations we’ve gone through the difficult process of picking out a shortlist of three finalists for each category.

We are honouring the work of Bolton Cares employees who meet the values of the organisation – individuals or teams who deliver high quality, compassionate care and support; who put people first; who are warm, friendly and caring; who go the extra mile; who tell it like it is and who help people live better lives.

The finalists will receive an invitation to the awards ceremony on Friday 20 October and every nominee will receive a certificate.
