Margaret Butterworth Award

The annual Margaret Butterworth Award has been given a new lease of life by NAPA (National Activity Providers Association), which is taking over the Award for front line staff in health and social care.  Butterworth died in 2002 but colleagues established the Award in her memory to recognise the work of health care assistants, activity coordinators, and social care staff who demonstrate excellence in dementia care.  Hilary Woodhead, executive director of NAPA, said: “As Margaret was the founder of NAPA, it seems highly fitting in this our 25th anniversary year, that the Margaret Butterworth Award finds a new home to continue and preserve Margaret’s legacy for the future.”
