A WHITCHURCH care business is hoping it can to add another award to its glittering trophy cabinet ahead of an event in Birmingham on Friday.

AStar Homecare Services, from Whitchurch, has been invited to the National Great British Care Awards following on from the company's regional awards title.

They were able to add “Best Care Employer in the Northwest” and “Best Care team in the Northwest” to their collection back in November 2023 and now head to Birmingham this Friday in the hope of picking up another national award.


Gill Holden, co-owner and director of AStar, said she was delighted with the chance to win more awards.

She said: “I am thrilled to be attending the nationals again this year – for the most prestigious awards too.

“We are so very lucky to have the team we do which makes this possible.

“My husband Adam and I set this company up six years ago in the hope we could try and make a difference to our community.

“We feel we really have achieved this with the help of some incredible people.

“As having joined forces with LIPA care we have seen AStar continue to grow and support yet more local people and given further local people a career in care.
