Credo carer recognised in Queen's birthday honours list

We are delighted to announce that one of our foster carers has been selected to be given an award in this weekend's Queen's Birthday Honours List. Julie Nixon will receive the British Empire Medal (BEM) for her services to disabled children and fostering.

The staff and directors of Credo Care are pleased that the Cabinet Office and the Queen have chosen Julie for this award, and to mark the occasion organised a small get-together at our Lydd office. Julie and her family were joined by fellow Credo Care foster carers, staff and directors. Chairman of Credo Care, Bishop Damien Mead, presented Julie with some flowers and thanked her for the amazing work she does to improve the lives of the children in her care.

Julie has been a foster carer for Credo Care for over six years and said:

"Ultimately, I just think every day is a complete joy. I honestly believe that this is my life - I've never felt like it's my job. I absolutely love what I do, and the progress made by the children is a reward in itself."
