County Durham business wins national award for neurodiversity work

An organisation based in County Durham has been recognised on a national level for its commitment to providing care to neurodiverse service users, with the award being presented by ITV’s Josie Gibson at a glittering ceremony in London.


Resolve Care, which has bespoke homes in Bishop Auckland and Spennymoor, has achieved the Above and Beyond Team Award (specialist services) in the Stars of Social Care Awards, which ‘shines a light on the stars of social care, paying tribute to the workforce, who through dedication and a commitment to care, go above and beyond to support those who are most vulnerable.’


This is the latest in a string of awards that the company has won, having recently been given Advanced Accreditation status by the National Autistic Society too.


Anne Graham, Director & Service Manager from Resolve Care said: “It’s a real honour to be given this award, which recognises the hard work and dedication of everyone at Resolve Care. We are so proud to provide the highest quality of care to the neurodiverse people we support and it’s a special moment for the team to be given national recognition.”


Resolve Care provides residential care for male adults with learning disabilities, employing a staff team of over 30 people. In 2016, Directors Anne Graham, David King and Dr Celia Harbottle were the authors of a published academic paper, which outlines Resolve’s Model of Care. This demonstrates how the highest possible levels of care can be delivered to people with autism and a learning disability, enabling a meaningful and good quality of life. Both homes are inspected by the Care Quality Commission and continue to be rated as ‘Outstanding’.
