October 2019 · 2 min read

Joseph Birks, team leader at the Staffordshire Recovery Hub, will find out at the end of the month if he is a winner at the Great British Care Awards. The annual event celebrates the significant contributions made by individuals working in the care sector.

Joe

Joseph, is nominated in the frontline leader category. Since he began working at the Hub in October 2018, he has been praised for motivating his team, bringing more transparency to the service and creating a safer working environment.

The Staffordshire Recovery Hub offers one to one support, peer support, and sessions on building social skills, confidence and employability . Baking and tai chi feature amongst social activities on offer and there is also a 24 hour helpline available to people who use the service.

Regional Head of Operations, Nicola Cullen, who made the nomination, said: “Joseph demonstrates a perfect balance between being people-focused and results-focused, developing a happy and highly-motivated team.

“His leadership qualities are matched by his skills and extensive knowledge. He is flexible, resilient, has incredibly high standards and is able to motivate everyone he comes into contact with to share these standards.”

Joseph said: “Staffordshire Recovery Hub is a community based service, used by people aged from 16-80.

“As well as running our own sessions, lots of the people who have accessed our service go on to set up their own social groups, from a walking group to a women’s group.

“I’m really pleased to have been shortlisted. It’s great to be recognised and it shows that the service is doing well. The nomination is for everyone I work with, who all contribute to the service and make it a lot easier for me to run.”

Joseph will find out whether he has won at a gala awards evening at the ICC, Birmingham on Saturday 2nd November.
