The entire team at Toller Road care home, part of the Danshell Group, are celebrating after being recognised for the high quality of personalised support they provide. The care home received the ‘Putting People First Award’ at the East Midlands regional Great British Care Awards, and will now go on to represent their region at the national final in March next year.

All of our teams support people to live as independent and fulfilling lives as possible.
