Celebrating our Social Care Heroes

Published: 30th July 2020
Launched in April, our Social Care Heroes campaign recognises the efforts of our staff who have gone above and beyond during the coronavirus pandemic.

Look Ahead staff across the organisation have gone to extraordinary efforts to support our customers during unprecedented challenges. At a time of great uncertainty and anxiety, our staff went above and beyond to continue to provide quality care and support to over 7000 vulnerable people across London and the South East.

To recognise these efforts, we launched our Social Care Heroes campaign to highlight the positive stories in difficult times. Staff shared countless stories of the way that both staff and their colleagues rallied together, passed on tips for coping in lockdown, and gave shout outs to their teammates who had gone the extra mile. We saw so many examples of kindness and creativity.

From hosting socially distanced parties at services, finding new ways to exercise at home, to even staying entertained with TikTok challenges, we’ve been so inspired by how our staff have responded to the challenges they’ve faced. We also had weekly prizes for staff to allow for some friendly competition, and Social Care Heroes posters were proudly displayed on the windows of our services.

As we bring a close to the campaign, we have put together a video featuring just some of the highlights from the last few months which you can watch below:

A huge thank you to all of our staff for their work, which makes a huge difference to the lives of vulnerable people. Each of them are, and always will be, our Social Care Heroes.
