As part of our reward and recognition strategy, we have introduced a new value based employee of the month recognition scheme and we are pleased to announce the winner for the month of October is Amy Elsworth.

Amy was nominated by her fellow colleagues for being Kind, Passionate and Collaborative and going above and beyond in her role to making a difference. In the words of her colleagues: โ€œAmy treats everyone with the respect they deserve. Her presence seems to put other staff members at ease, even during challenging times. She will always try her best even in difficult circumstances and will always make sure staff and the people we support are happy and all their needs are being met. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for Amy, she always has a smile on her face and demonstrates experience beyond her years and is a great example of the M&D Care core valuesโ€.

We Did It! Our Team Ran The Llanelli Half Marathon.

Today we were proud headline sponsors and title partner of the Llanelli Half Marathon 2021. Despite the harsh weather conditions it was a fantastic event that brought the whole community together.
ย 
As a local family run business, we feel, now more than ever before, that it’s important to come together and support events such as these which promote good health and wellbeing. We see exercise as an integral part of physical and mental wellbeing, and this is something we actively encourage amongst our staff and the people we support.
Here at M&D Care we share similar values to the Front Runner Events, we are an inclusive company which supports people to achieve their goals and aspirations. We are passionate about our community and hope that this shared vision will extend to the wider community and beyond so that together we can achieve and overcome any barriers put in front of us.
ย 
Well done to all those who took part today, especially Team M&D Care who were running in support of the The Paul Ridd Foundation, a charity M&D Care have a shared connection with. The whole team were amazing!! ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘
