Caring for You honours Australia's leading nursing professionals - 2021 Core Values awards

We were delighted to hold our Inaugural Caring for You Core Values Awards on September 3, 2021, which recognised the exceptional care, warmth and compassion displayed by our staff and nursing community over the past 12 months.

The virtual event took place on Friday and was attended by the Caring for You Board and staff members, carers and the family and friends of the 2021 finalists who gathered to celebrate the people who lead Australia’s healthcare industry.

Caring for You’s late founder, Louise Thomson (Louy), began the agency with the aspiration of providing a vital service that was always from a nurse’s perspective, driven by a desire to supply well-trained professional nurses to the healthcare industry who would be appreciated by employers with strong values.

Before her passing earlier this year, Louy established the core values that embodied the humility and care of the Caring for You family in everything we do. The inaugural Core Value Awards were created by Co-CEOs Grace and Belle Thomson to honour the legacy of their mother, Louy, and the values she instilled into the Caring for You brand.

Two awards were dedicated to each value to recognise and celebrate a nurse and a Caring for You staff member who has demonstrated excellence, growth, caring, support, fun and positivity and a can-do attitude over the past year. The winners of these six categories were presented with a beautiful glass trophy and a $500 cash prize.

The awards included The Tony Miller Award, which is dedicated to Louy’s late father and provides a learning fund to help the winner focus on continual learning in the nursing sector.

The final award of the night honoured the character and drive of Louy, aptly named ‘The Louy Award.’ It was a pleasure for Louy’s daughters to present a staff member with a $5,000 prize and one of their valued nurses with a brand-new car.

The winners of the 2021 Caring for You Value Awards include:

The Tony Miller Award 


The Louy Awards


Core Values Awards C4U Healthcare Professionals


Core Values Awards C4U Internal Staff


Grace and Belle were astounded by the sheer number of nominations received, with over 100 submissions, which made narrowing down the 15 winners exceptionally hard.At the awards night, Grace said, “she was a huge advocate for celebrating the incredible efforts of people who go above and beyond, and for finding the joy in the moment, even in the most challenging of times - such as those we have all faced in the last 18 months. We felt there was no better way to honour her memory than to create a night which speaks to the person that Louy was and all she stood for.”

Thank you to all who attended the virtual event and the hundreds of people who took the time to nominate a team member who embodied our six core values.

Please join us in congratulating the proud winners of the Inaugural Core Values Awards.
