Finalists in the Learning Disability and Autism Awards 2018
We are exceptionally proud to share that two colleagues and an entire team are finalists in this year’s LD and Autism Awards, which will be held in Birmingham.
Gari Mungwariri, Service Manager of Southwold House, Dale Elkin-Walker a Support Worker and the team of Belstead Mews have all been shortlisted as finalists and will be making their way to Birmingham for a judging day and then onto the Gala Dinner Event in late June.
Leaving behind a life in computer science, banking, customs and excise, Gari describes his years in Social Care with Consensus as his most fulfilling. As Manager he is proud to have been able to effect huge positive progress in his service for people supported and colleagues. He’s passionate about making a difference. He is shortlisted for ‘The Manager Award.’
Shortlisted in the ‘Making a Difference Award’, with over thirty years in social care Dale’s passion for her role as a support worker is relentless. She has through experiences built a huge capacity to build a rapport with every person she supports and her colleagues and inspires others to achieve their goals through growing trust and confidence.
Belstead Mews is a strong team of 19 led by Pat Haley and over the past three years colleagues right across the team have proven their passion for providing the highest quality support with an incredible level of understanding and empathy. The whole team say they benefit from regular clinical oversight that enables them to look beyond behaviours and provide a holistic approach to supporting the young people within the service. They are delighted to have been shortlisted for the ‘Great Autism Practice Award.’
We are also extremely pleased for two individuals we support who have, as part of the Northants Learning Disability and Partnership Board, been shortlisted for an award. Well don’t to John and Paul from our outstanding community support services in Kettering.
