First-ever ‘People We Support Awards’ a success

20/09/2019

Outstanding achievements were recognised at the Our Voice Conference on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th September.

On Saturday, after various presentations, including an overview the ‘Down Memory Lane’ initiative, which brought old and young together, it was time to party.

The next day was one of celebrating achievements with a number of people we support receiving their ASDAN certificates.

Our first-ever People We Support Awards were next. With 12 categories there was a lot to recognise and applaud. Well done to all the winners listed below.
