TAP Awards

We will soon launch an awards program as another way to shine a light on the Unsung Heroes making a positive difference in their work and communities. We will have 3 award categories in 1) Healthcare, 2) Social Care and 3) Education. The winner will be chosen from a short list of messages collected through the TAP platform. TAP then gets into ‘celebration mode’ through sending a certificate and badge to the winning worker and their organisation. TAP also shares their positive story with the local media. Our colleagues in the UK (TAP Ltd) have already started their TAP Awards program and below are the winners to date.

TAP Award in Education - January 2022

To: Lorna Miller, Barton Peveril, Eastleigh, Hampshire

The most wonderful teacher that takes time to personalise responses to each student, despite being the only Teacher on the course. Thank you :-)

TAP Award in Healthcare - December 2021

To: Minor Injury Department, Andover War Memorial Hospital (Hampshire)

After a fall off a horse, I rang 111. I was given a time slot at A&E in Andover Hospital. I was greeted by a wonderful Receptionist, who introduced me to a Nurse called Sally, who saw me immediately and was sympathetic and caring. I was then x-rayed by very kind staff. Within a short time I left with my diagnosis of broken ribs and advice on how to manage it. Despite the discomfort I felt, the staff made me feel so much better.

TAP Award in Social Care - November 2021

To: All Staff, The Grange Care Home, Southall

The gratitude that my family and I feel towards all the staff that look after my sister, can not be put into words. Nothing is too much trouble even when things are really difficult. We feel reassured to know that my sister is safe, cared for and is treated like she still has a voice. Thank you!
