Amber Trust wins national award

Amber Trust, a registered charity based in Ripley, were announced winners of the Skills for Care Accolade “Best Employer of up to 250 staff” at a gala event in Birmingham.

The Accolades commend and celebrate best practice in social care workforce development and rewards organisations and individuals for the support and development of workers.
