Award to Abbeyview Practice, Crowland
Award to Abbeyview Practice, Crowland

Abbeyview Practice in Crowland is the first in the county to be recognised for the way it supports unpaid carers.

Staff have been awarded the Lincolnshire Carers Quality Award from the Lincolnshire Carers and Young Carers Partnership (LCYCP).

The LCYCP works to increase awareness of unpaid carers – those who provide unpaid support to a family member, friend or neighbour who would otherwise not be able to manage to live independently or whose health or wellbeing would deteriorate without this help.
