TAP Awards

In May 2021, we launched an awards program as another way to shine a light on the Unsung Heroes making a positive difference in their work and communities. We have 3 award categories in 1) Healthcare, 2) Social Care, and 3) Education. The winner is chosen from a short list of messages collected through the TAP platform. TAP then gets into 'celebration mode' through sending a certificate and badge to the winning worker and their organisation. TAP also shares their positive story with the local media. TAP will run an annual Awards event in 2022.

TAP Award in Social Care - November 2021

"The gratitude that my family and I feel towards all the staff that look after my sister, can not be put into words. Nothing is too much trouble even when things are really difficult. We feel reassured to know that my sister is safe, cared for and is treated like she still has a voice. Thank you!"

TAP Award in Healthcare - October 2021

"I would just like to thank Mr. Gupta and his team for the wonderful care I received when I came in for surgery. Everybody made me feel at ease. Nurse Charma and Physio, Julie made sure I had everything needed, to leave and feel confident. I would also like to thank Chris, the porter who even carried my bag out to the car."

TAP Award in Social Care - August 2021

"To the whole team, which includes the carers, housekeeping, kitchen, activities team and office staff. Keep the fantastic work up in these challenging weeks/months ahead. We are protecting the loved ones of those we trust are staying at home and not seeing our loved ones because of the job we do. You are all amazing."

"I would like to thank Anna on behalf of all my family, for not only being a supportive Link Worker to my sister, but also for reassuring us today that my sister is settling into her new, albeit temporary environment. To know that she is safe and secure and when we can't see her is such a comfort to us. Thank you!"

TAP Award in Education - July 2021

"To the present KSI staff, who continue to come into work/school everyday. You are all wonderful, committed and driven people. From the beginning of the first lockdown, some of you have shown sheer dedication and strength to deal with many upturns in our usual school life. Without you guys physically showing your faces through this time, with no regard to your own personal struggles, is an absolute achievement to be recognised. Amazing, loved and truly recognised"
To: Holy Cross CVA Primary School, Oldham, Greater Manchester

TAP Award in Social Care - June 2021

"My message of thanks is for the help given to me when I couldn't get help from the doctors for my mental health. She referred me to a Social Prescriber, who l can call/ text at any time for mental health help. She also organised free meals to be delivered to my door, 3 times a week as I am a single mum and to save me having to go shopping as much with my 2 kids. She always goes above and beyond to help me, even during this coronovirus crisis."

Next week even go back to work on who a phased start. From the Sister, every day bought items from her own pocket for patients, to the cleaners who kept the Wards clean. Thank you each and everyone o' you."
