Care bosses land top award.

COUNTY care bosses are celebrating after beating off competition from all over the region to scoop a top award.

Warwickshire social services were awarded the Public Sector Award in the finals of the Midlands Excellence Awards 2004.

Council bosses were presented with the award by Olympic gold medallist Sir Steve Redgrave at a ceremony attended by 1,300 people.

Hundreds of firms and organisations compete for the awards, which recognise excellence in regional businesses.

Warwickshire County Council's social services department - which supports 25,000 vulnerable residents and employs 3,000 people across the county - beat dozens of other public sector entries from the Welsh borders across to East Anglia.

Director of Social Care and Health for the county council Marion Davis said: "We are continually striving to improve and this wonderful award win is the icing on the cake in a year which has seen some excellent inspection reports and achievements in the social services department."
