Our Awards​

The Matrix quality standard.

HS4LC were awarded the Matrix standard in October 2017. The Matrix Standard is a unique quality standard designed for organisations like HS4LC to access and measure their advice and support services. It looks at how we offer information, advice and guidance which ultimately supports individuals in their choice of career, learning, work and life goals. This is an award we are very proud to have been given. In 2020 we are very pleased to say we passed our third year continuous improvement check.

The Duke of York Community Initiative award.

HS4LC are very proud to have been awarded our third Duke of York Community Initative award in 2018. 

HRH The Duke of York’s Community Initiative Award is granted annually to a small number of local organisations that having been subjected to rigorous and robust scrutiny are deemed to be: “of real value to the community, well run and an inspiration to others.” 

Excellence in Care

Our care home, Brackenley was proudly awarded the "Excellence in care" accreditation in 2017. The EiC is an outcome-based framework, demonstrating an establishment’s commitment to improving and sustaining improvements in the quality of care and service user experience. It both recognises and celebrates Excellence in Care. In September 2019 HS4LC were awarded ‘The Excellence in Care Framework Award for defining, delivering and improving the care provided to residents/customers/service’. The award was for our engagement with the EIC
framework at our Brackenley Care Home.
