PERFORMANCE: Dimensions UK’s Folkstone team has been shortlisted for award in the Great British Care Awards.

The 11-strong staff team based at Old Dover Road in Folkestone supports two people with complex learning and physical disabilities to live in their own home.

The service is run by Dimensions, a national not-for-profit organisation who provide learning disabilities support and autism care.

Staff members have developed a vegetable patch in the garden of Old Dover Road. This created an organic diet for those being supported and aided their understanding of the food process.

The service has been shortlisted in the Nutrition and Hydration category of the Great British Care Awards.

The team at Old Dover Road will now face a judging panel before attending an awards ceremony to find out if they have won.
