HC-One Wins ‘Inclusion Award’ at the NAPA Member Activity Awards 2022

HC-One have been named as the winners of the ‘Inclusion Award’ at the National Activity Providers Association (NAPA) Member Activity Awards 2022 which took place on Friday 7th October 2022 at a virtual award ceremony.

The NAPA Member Awards celebrate excellence in activity provision, and recognise individuals and teams who show innovation, creativity, outstanding commitment, and a skilled approach to prioritising wellbeing.

The ‘Inclusion Award’ was presented to HC-One due to promoting inclusion, equality, diversity and celebrating individuals of different backgrounds.

HC-One’s approach to activities and engagement is truly inclusive, inspires others to think creatively and ensures people know that they matter.

Judges felt inspired by the organisational approach to HC-One celebrating Black History Month, recognising the contributions and achievements of those with African or Caribbean heritage, introducing taster sessions for Residents to broaden their food palettes so they can experience food from other cultures, encouraging teams to challenge negative stereotypes and have shone a light on the achievements of black Colleagues and Residents.

Lawra Baumane, Quality of Life Specialist at HC-One commented:
“I am delighted that HC-One has been chosen as the winner of the ‘Inclusion Award’ at the distinguished NAPA Member Activity Awards 2022.
