Great news! Our Kiosk Team were winners at this year’s Learning Disability & Autism Leaders List Awards 2021.
Having been chosen by an expert panel of judges, who saw almost 200 fantastic entries this year, the people we support at the River Park take their place on the Leaders List for 2021 along with a select group of people who have achieved so much this past year.
Congratulations to the whole team – Chris, Conor, Daniel, Jake, Liam, and Steven – for their win. The Learning Disability and Autism Leaders List is a prestigious national award which recognises the extraordinary achievements of people with learning disabilities and/or autism across a variety of categories, allowing people with disabilities to be their own spokespeople and advocates. The overall winners are also judged and chosen by former winners of the awards.
The ceremony was held online this year, due to the pandemic, and was presented by BBC Radio 2’s Ken Bruce. The team met at the River Park Heritage Centre to watch the awards together and enjoyed a celebratory buffet.
Huge thanks to Neil Murphy and all our staff who support this talented group. Thanks also to National Lottery Heritage Fund who provide vital funding to help provide this service, and to The Land Trust for their support.
