We would like to extend a very well deserved congratulations to our members of staff who received their Care Visions Long Service Awards this year in November.

Our annual awards event was held on Thursday the 16th of November at the Radstone Hotel in Lanarkshire.

We were delighted to come together to recognise the fantastic efforts and commitment of our team. This again proved to be a special day, allowing us the opportunity to celebrate and honour those who have made, and continue to make, a real difference to the lives of Children and Young People across Scotland. This year the awardees included Care Visions Staff from Residential Child Care and Fostering.

Sharon Boniface, CEO of Care Visions Children's Services, welcomed everyone and spoke warmly about the value that those in attendance bring to the organisation and the lives of children. At the start of the event we also heard some words from Chairman of Care Visions, Mike Reid. The awards followed a video presentation featuring some touching personal messages from colleagues and friends. It was then time for an afternoon tea and a chance to catch up for all there. 

On the awards, Sharon Boniface, CEO of Care Visions Children’s Services, said, "It was such a pleasure to be able to celebrate over 200 years of combined long service for staff who have worked with Care Visions for 10, 15 and 20 years!  The stories shared on the day were testament to the commitment of our staff to supporting young people as well as one another.  We are fortunate as an organisation to have such a wealth of experience throughout our teams and to have stability and consistency in our relationships which are central to the work we do."


It was great that most of the staff who had reached their significant milestone were able to accept their award in person. There were recipients for 10, 15 and 20 years of service with Care Visions.

We are very much looking forward to building on the success of the last two years and honouring even more long-serving members of our team in 2024.
