Kay worked with Response from 2009-2014. During her time here Kay had a tremendous impact on the organisation as a whole and on individual lives. Her passion for her work in HR and dedication to improving staff terms and conditions was an inspiration. Also her unfailing commitments to the charitable aims of the organisation were evident every day of the 5 years we were lucky to work with her.

In recognition of Kay’s impact and as a testament to her belief in the values and aims of the organisation the Kay Sharp Award was founded in 2015.

The award recognises an individual or team that have gone above and beyond their roles and responsibilities, representing the values of Response in a way that deserves special merit and mention.

This year the Kay Sharp Award was presented to Kathryn Woodham: Registered Manager of Response Homecare.
