Cartref Ni’s Ruth Wellum was awarded Silver in Excellence In Learning Disability & Mental Health Services Award at this year’s Wales Care Awards.

The annual Wales Care Awards are a celebration of excellence across the Wales care sector with a purpose of congratulating those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field.

This year’s prestigious award ceremony, held at the iconic City Hall in Cardiff, was hosted by well-known Radio Wales presenter and opera singer Wynne Evans and was the first awards ceremony to be held in person since before the pandemic.

Congratulations also went to a number of Cartref Ni staff who were nominated at this year’s awards and shortlisted for an interview which in itself is a major achievement. Staff included Lorraine Eccles, Angela Buckland, Heather Lightfoot and Claire Cassidy.
