The team at Redan street were nominated for both awards by Michael Crane, Operations Manager for East Anglia 3, who praised them for putting all their knowledge, skills and enthusiasm into supporting opportunity, choice and success for the individuals living in the service.

Michael said, “Melany and the team are incredibly passionate about providing the best support they can and work closely with the individuals they support, their families and health and social care professionals in order to achieve this. I am delighted that through their shortlisting as finalists for these two prestigious awards, their hard work, commitment and positive outcomes have been recognised.

Melany said, “It is a privilege to lead such an amazing team who always place individuals at the centre of their care and whose commitment to supporting individuals to grow in independence and live a meaningful life has consistently resulted in people achieving exceptional outcomes.”

“I am looking forward to attending the gala evening on behalf of the team at Redan Street and to being part of an experience that celebrates excellence in our sector.”

Melany represented the service in both categories at a virtual judging day which was held on 20th November and has been invited to attend a glittering Gala event in April 2021, where the winners will be announced.
