Maritime charity The Royal Alfred Seafarers’ Society was named Residential Care Home Provider of the Year at the Laing Buisson Awards.
The honour recognised the top quality care facilities the independent charity provides for former seafarers and their dependents at its Surrey Belvedere House nursing home.
Chief Executive Commander Brian Boxhall-Hunt said: “I’m so proud of the entire team’s achievements which have culminated in this award win.
“It really is a testament to the dedication and hard work of everyone when it comes to caring for our former seafaring residents. We work tirelessly to create a homely atmosphere for those who come to stay at Belvedere House.
“It is without a doubt that seeing the joy of our residents motivates us to continue providing the top quality care we have become synonymous with.”
The award recognises care providers who go above and beyond to provide innovative care solutions with a commitment to engaging with service users through individualised care plans.
