News from Alertacall plus articles and insights on how to enhance outcomes for people with higher needs in the housing, health and social care sectors.
Friday 21st April was a very proud day for Alertacall as our CEO and founder James has been presented with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation at a special event in the Lake District.
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is the highest accolade for UK business, recognising only a small number of outstanding companies.
James was presented with the award by Lord-Lieutenant of Cumbria Claire Hensman at an event on shores of Lake Windermere.
“One of the things which makes the Queen’s Awards so special – and so rare – is the rigorous evaluation process that winners have to go through,” says James.
“The assessment panel asked us hundreds of questions and follow up questions and there’s no doubt that if you win this award then you really deserve it and you really are doing something right.
“It’s fantastic for all our hardworking team members to be recognised in this way and I take my hat off to every one of them. They do so much to help improve people’s lives and keep them safe every day.
“Finally, I hope the award is a reflection of a growing awareness around the need to combat social isolation and the role that we can all play by reaching out to friends, relatives or neighbours.
“We know all too well how badly loneliness can affect people’s mental and physical health. Alertacall has always been about combining ingenious tech and genuine human contact to combat isolation, improve people’s lives and keep them safe, connected and informed.
“Our team have done so much good work to improve people’s lives since I founded Alertacall back in 2004 and we’re really looking forward to helping many more people remain healthy and happy long into the future.”
