We’re thrilled that Kiki – who secured her dream job at Chelsea Football Club – has been named a finalist in Dimensions’ Learning Disability and Autism Leaders’ List 2021. This means that Kiki’s story is now with the panel of judges, who will help choose the final Leaders.
Launched in 2018, the Leaders’ List is the UK’s first national list celebrating achievements of people with learning disabilities and/or autism.
Kiki will find out if she is a winner on Friday 3 December. Good luck Kiki!
We’d also like to congratulate Anne, Aiden and Justin who were nominated for the Leaders’ List.
And in other great news, Jo Watkins has been shortlisted in the Social Care Covid Hero Award category at the National Learning Disabilities and Autism Awards.
These awards celebrate excellence in the support for people with learning disabilities and aim to pay tribute to those individuals or organisations who excel in providing quality care.
Jo was working as a house manager at two of Certitude’s properties in Hounslow when the pandemic started. She has been recognised for her selflessness and dedication to the people we support and her staff members, and for her commitment to maintaining the safety of the people we support, her teams and her services.
The winners of the National Learning Disabilities and Autism Awards will be announced at a gala evening which is taking place on Friday 29 October. Good luck Jo!
Watch this space to find out how they get on!
