Andrew Mack, a Carer Support Worker for Carers Trust South East Wales, is among the final five nominees to become a finalist for the inaugural WeCare Wales award.

The WeCare Wales award is a new award for the Social Care Accolades 2020. It celebrates individual care workers in Wales who have a positive impact on people’s lives. The five finalists work in various roles in social care. They help the adults, children and families they work with achieve what really matters to them every day.

More than 70 care workers were nominated for the award and a panel of four judges whittled the nominees down to five finalists.

Andrew was nominated by Emma Baker (above), our Head of Respite and Short Breaks. Taken from the Social Care Wales website, here's a snippet of what Emma had to say about Andrew:

'Andrew is a dedicated, intuitive support worker who enriches and enhances the lives of every child and family he supports. Andrew adapts his approach to every child, building strong relationships with families. Andrew uses communication tools to understand their thoughts, wishes, feelings and choices. He also appreciates every child’s interests, passions and favourite superheroes, even dressing up as an Avenger for a special event!'

Voting is open until Friday, 16 October 2020 and the winner will be announced at a virtual Accolades awards ceremony on Tuesday, 10 November 2020.
