The service's Wokingham facility, The Dingles, has also been shortlisted for Children's Home Team.

This follows it winning the Investing in Children Membership Award in May.

Mrs Redgwell said: "The whole team at Calcot Services for Children is delighted and humbled to have been shortlisted in three categories at this year's National Children and Young People Awards.

"It is a testament to how hard everyone has worked to ensure that the young people we care for receive the best possible love and support while they are with us.

"A special commendation needs to go to the team at The Dingles, who have been recognised for the second time in a short period.

"Their fantastic work has been identified by Investing in Children and the National Children and Young People Awards, and also by the children living there, who were key contributors to the nominations. It's an honour for us to have been shortlisted and we're excited to attend the awards ceremony in October."
