We're proud of our carers

We're really proud of our carers in Barnsley. That's why we're delighted to see their work over the pandemic recognised in Barnsley's COVID memorial - Reverence.

The sculpture stands in the heart of the town centre in The Glass Works square. It pays tribute to our carers, alongside other key workers and unsung heroes.
