We recently held our Best Care Awards to honour our staff who consistently make an outstanding contribution, while delivering our values of care, community, integrity and excellence.

With more than 200 nominations nationally, the awards’ theme reflected on our strategic goal to embed Best Care in everything we do.


Silver Chain CEO, Dale Fisher, had the honour of hosting the event, which was held virtually for the first time.


“It was a wonderful celebration of the human impact we have on the lives of so many Australians and it was special to see the collegial spirit and respect we have for one another,” said Dale.


This year we introduced two new awards, the Outstanding Contribution Award and the Courage and Humanity Award.
