Nominator Joanne Melia put forward her housemates, who all work for Health & Social Care, due to their supportive natures.

‘I have nominated them for this award because everyone here looks out for each other,’ she said.

‘If someone is unwell or isolating, the rest offer to get shopping, medication or anything needed.’

She was thankful for the community feel at Sunnyside.

‘We message each other when going away so that nobody worries if they haven’t seen you around.

‘If someone needs a general chat, a bit of support, a last minute lift or just a friend, there is always someone to help.’

She added: ‘We share both good and bad news, offering congratulations or condolences.

‘I couldn’t wish to live with a nicer group of people.

‘We are all away from our families, a diverse group of support workers who support each other whenever needed in a true neighbourly way.’
