Just wanted to say a big thank you for having myself and Neil today at the awards.
Belong is clearly a phenomenal place of work for your staff, and home for your customers. I cannot believe the passion and dedication shown by your teams.
I work in a lot of care homes, with a lot of care providers and Belong stand head and shoulders above most!
Many thanks once again.
