The Home Care competition has now closed and we are happy to announce the winners. We received a lot of interesting and innovative ideas from a range of User Led Organisations and Community Groups, including Older People, Disabled People and People with Learning Difficulties. After a long and lively discussion the judging panel was unable to split the two most promising proposals, both of which scored highly. So, Hampshire County Council have kindly agreed to top-up the prize fund and split it equally between the two winners. They have both been awarded a prize of £4,000 of development funding plus 121 mentoring from the Council’s Deputy Director of Adult Services to help them develop their proposals further.
The two winning entries were from: Disabled People’s Voice Hampshire and, Local Treasures, based in Petersfield. To read a summary of the two winning proposals – and what the judges said about them – follow the links below.
