Shaw are delighted to announce that they have been recognised with an award for support shown to employees with their learning and development

Kieren Logan-Gallenn, Head of Learning and Development, Martin Vanhinsbergh, Regional Director for Shaw healthcare were presented with the ‘Principal’s Special Recognition Award’ for their outstanding support given to learners during these difficult times.

Due to ongoing restrictions, the award was presented virtually via video call by Mike Gaston, Principal and CEO of HSDC (Havant and South Down College), who provide the apprenticeship programme for Shaw’s services in West Sussex and the South Coast.

Kieran said, “Our colleagues are having to work longer and harder than ever before to meet the needs of the people we support in our services.  This award is testament to the hard work our service managers face in these particularly challenging times and I would like to congratulate our colleagues who have persevered through their learning and development and to everyone supporting them through their learning.”

Shaw healthcare works in partnership with Apprenticeship providers to ensure all colleagues can be developed into their role, whatever their role in the organisation.  The qualification lasts around 12 to 18 months and requires full support from the Service Manager and their team to ensure learners are supported through mentorship and are given opportunities to learn and reflect on their practice. 

Shaw currently have 33 colleagues across the West Sussex region completing their Level 2, 3, 4 and 5 Apprenticeship Qualifications.

Dear relatives,

I’m pleased to say that Shaw is making fantastic progress with the COVID-19 vaccinations. The majority of our staff and residents have been vaccinated and scheduled to get the second dose shortly.

The national statistics being reported suggest that we are over the second peak and there is light at the end of the tunnel. To get back to ‘normal’ and the life we once knew we will all need to be vaccinated to help our chances to overcome COVID-19 should we catch it and to prevent it from spreading to each other.

Each of our care homes has been doing everything in their power to ensure that residents and employees are vaccinated. The LFT testing continues to help us operate to manage the visiting, as well as exercising social distancing, using PPE, hand washing, risk assessments and adhering to all other public health guidelines.

We appreciate your continued support and understanding of the situation that the care homes face to protect your loved ones. I sincerely hope that we can get back to visiting as we once knew it.

Thank you again,

Mike Smith, Chief Operating Officer
