Care workers and personal assistants who provide care for others with dignity and compassion could win an award for their efforts.

People have been asked to nominate anyone they think deserves a Dignity in Care Award.

Last year the awards received 60 nominations and names should be submitted by July 14.

Councillor David Marlow, cabinet member for adult services and health, said: "The Dignity in Care awards mark a fantastic opportunity to recognise the crucial service care workers provide to residents of Richmond and the importance of treating the people they care for with the respect they deserve.

"I urge anyone who has received or has witnessed such exemplary care to nominate that person and stand up for Dignity in Care."
