A Somerset care home worker has been rewarded for his commitment to his role with a prestigious national award.

Shaun Hills, aged 27, works for Homes Caring for Autism, at the Holly Tree Cottage residential home in Berrow.

The care home worker award is part of the Great British Care Awards and Shaun was nominated for his attention to detail and ability to treat people with dignity and respect.

Richard Smith, founder and managing director of Homes Caring for Autism, said: “This award recognises the significant role the care home worker has in consistently providing a high-quality standard, for people living in residential care, and it provides well-deserved recognition of the commitment that Shaun has shown to the people he supports.

“It is particularly fitting that Shaun was nominated by the mother of a young autistic man whom he has cared for over the past eight years. It is through workers like Shaun that we are able to make such a difference.”
