Winning support

Teams and individuals from Certitude have been receiving lots of awards this month.

We are very proud that both James Morris and John Keaveny have been awarded places on Learning Disability and Autism Leadership List. This is a new award which recognises people with autism and learning disabilities who are working to make things better. James won his place for the work he does advocating on behalf of people with autism and John for the learning disability awareness training he provides with Treat Me Right! In the next couple of weeks’ we’ll be publishing blogs on our website from James and John about the changes they would most like to see happen.

Congratulations also go to our Solidarity in a Crisis team who were highly commended in the Suicide Prevention Category at the Positive Practice in Mental Health Awards. Certitude were also jointly awarded the ‘Third Sector Working in Partnership with the NHS Award’ with Navigo and Mental Health Matters.

Last but not least, the support team at Princes Road in Richmond are London Regional Finalists of the Great British Care Awards. The awards take place on November 10 so we’ll post an update to let you know how they get on.
