The conference saw delegates from Mid Sussex to Derby come together for the first time in two years, with a workship on preparing for the upcoming social care reforms and a talk by Olympic icon Eddie the Eagle also part of the day’s agenda.
The awards recognised five winners:
Care Team of the Year – Good Oaks Mid Sussex
Registered Manager of the Year – Gill Sutton (Good Oaks New Forest)
Sustainability Award – Elena Mlajiceanu (Good Oaks Mid Sussex)
Pinnacle Award – Good Oaks Reading and Newbury

Ben Ashton, co-founder of Good Oaks, said: “Every single office is bigger and busier than we were before the pandemic, and that is a testament to the essential, valued work we do every day.
“It was an honour to spend the day with our franchise partners, discussing plans for the future, celebrating success, and enjoying reconnecting and networking with everybody after what has been a challenging period.”
