Coastline Housing group chairman, Derek Law MBE, received the national award for Outstanding Contribution to Social Care at the Great British Care Awards.
Law attended a glittering ceremony in Birmingham for the national award finals along with over 900 of the country’s top social care professionals.
On accepting the award, he said: “It is an honour, privilege and humbling to receive this recognition especially having witnessed the amazing range of talented and committed front line staff and Managers present at the awards.
“I have always maintained that these are the people who matter most and make the real difference to people’s lives. It is the frontline staff who deliver the vision and strategies that people like myself orchestrate and, without them, the excellent care services for people in need simply wouldn’t exist. My thanks for this recognition goes to them.”
