Living Our Values

Winner: Kirsty Southall, Senior Support Worker, Arrowe Hall, Wales and West Region

Kirsty was nominated by Jordan Hall for her ‘hard work and dedication to TD’s transition’. Jordan said, ‘Bearing in mind this is her first time transitioning someone into service, she has taken to it like a duck to water. Her knowledge of TD ‘s needs and ways in which to manage her behaviours have been unbelievably impressive. Kirsty has attended the transition visits and each time has come back with ideas on how to ensure that the move creates as little distress as possible. Everyone in the sector will identify one person who ‘taught’ them. This is evidently one of these occasions as Kirsty has developed greatly in her role by having met TD. We are sure that TD will benefit from this as she moves into her own home.’

Shortlised:

• Paige Saunders, Kingston Office

• Louise Kemp and Team, Wales and West

• Sarah Jones, Wales and West

• Kate Varutti, Wales and West

• Rachel Dalley, London and South East

• Blue Cottage Team, London and South East
