This is a huge achievement for Kerry and our team and it is exciting to see how far we have come!
Kerry has been instrumental in evolving the business in the Dartford and Gravesend area and it was evident from the moment we met that she had a clear understanding of what exceptional customer service looks like and knew how to lead a team. Since she joined the team, no task was too much and no concerns by customers were left unattended. Kerry’s commitment and drive is unparalleled, and we are truly grateful to have her as part of the team.”
The Kent Care Awards are an annual event to celebrate the success of care businesses in the region and show appreciation for the work they do.
The other finalists were:
• Community Homecare Champion- Pauline Gibson (pictured below), in the category of ‘Care and Social Worker’.
Raspinder had this to say: “Pauline’s caring nature and willingness to go above and beyond has left her client’s extremely happy with the level of care they receive. Having new clients directly requesting Pauline to support them at home is a testament to the quality of care she provides in the community.”

Raspinder has this to say on his team: “The care team really became part of his family and this was mentioned at his funeral (of a client) during several of the speeches. His family could not be more thankful and gifted all the carers with flowers and cards of appreciation.”
• Kuljit Nagra was a finalist in the category of ‘Care Coordinator’
Raspinder talks proudly of another member of his Care Team: “Kuljit has excelled in her role as a Care Coordinator, listening to care staff, taking on board their needs and sympathising with their family commitments and life outside of work.
