Care services celebrate top rating by film screening
28th November 2007

An adult social care service is celebrating attaining top marks from the government by screening an award winning film made by community members with learning difficulties.

A screening of the award winning 'Germ Academy' short film will take place this Thursday to celebrate Somerset County Council receiving three stars from the Commission for Social Care Inspection.

Miriam Maddison, community director at Somerset County Hall, said: "To receive a three star rating is a welcome endorsement of all the work that the council does in this area. This event is all about celebrating the achievements of people we help."

The County Council's care services work with young people with physical disabilities, people with sensory loss and older people.

They were rated 'excellent' for leadership, use of resources, maintaining personal dignity and respect, increased choice and control and improving quality of life, health and emotional well-being.

The celebration will take place at Taunton's Brewhouse Theatre.

The short film won an award for Best Special Effects at the national Oska Bright Awards as well as receiving a nomination for Best Acting in October.
