About the Awards

The prestigious environmental awards are organised annually by the Northern Ireland Amenity Council (NIAC) and sponsored by independent supermarket group SuperValu.

Almost 100 health and social care premises across Northern Ireland entered the Best Kept Awards scheme this year and NIAC judges have been visiting the facilities since June to find the best kept medical practices, daycare centres, clinics and residential homes.

Winners were judged in three categories - Best Kept Day Care Facilities, Best Kept Residential Facilities and Best Kept Healthcare Facilities. NIAC judges inspected facilities for general tidiness, cleanliness and environmental enhancement.

For the staff and clients within our Day Centres, the award recognises the effort and commitment required to develop and maintain a tranquil environment that is of benefit to clients, visitors and staff.

Knockbracken Day Centre would like to thank Day Care Workers Maureen McDonald and Andrea Dawson for their continued support and expertise.
