Celebrate Success Awards recognises Barchester worker

Celebrate Success Awards recognises Barchester worker
9th December 2011

A Barchester care assistant from Perth has been honoured at the regional Prince's Trust and L'Oreal Paris Celebrate Success Awards.

The Perthshire Advertiser reported how Casey Carmichael, who works at Barchester's Ochil care home, was recognised for her efforts in supporting young people with learning difficulties.

Ms Carmichael, a 20 year old who has dyslexia, was awarded the Flying Start Award for overcoming her condition to help those like her and provide vital care and support in her community.

"It's so good to have won this award," she stated. "I can help others with dyslexia like me and want to keep doing work that helps look after people."

The awards recognise how young people overcome barriers in their lives to create positive results, in addition to those who have played a part in supporting the work of the Prince's Trust.

In particular, the Flying Start Award celebrates those who have used and overcome difficulties to secure sustainable employment.

Ms Carmichael has been shortlisted for a place in the national final of the awards, which will be held in London in the spring of next year.

Until then, she will continue in her vital work at Ochil care home.
