A Priory Adult Care supported living service has won a prestigious national award. Supporting You in the Midlands, a service which supports people across the Midlands in Worcester, Cannock, Wolverhampton, Dudley, Worcester, Hereford, Gloucester and Stoke-on-Trent, has won the social care category in the LaingBuisson awards.
Over 800 delegates from across the health and social care sectors attended the awards evening where they were presented with the accolade on 29 November. The evening was hosted by Gyles Brandreth, a broadcaster, writer, actor and former Member of Parliament at Park Plaza hotel, in London Bridge.
The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence in health and social care across thepublic and private sectors.
The service's nomination for the social care category was based on feedback from tenants and staff. They praised how the service improves their ability to enhance their independence. Over the last 18 months, many people have moved out of the service having been helped by staff to develop the necessary skills to live independently without support.
SYI Midlands provides support to individuals with learning disabilities, autism and/or mental health requirements to assist with daily living in their own home or via outreach services, so they can live as independent lives as possible. People receive support catered to their own personal needs.
Sally Jobling, Regional Manager of SYI Midlands and South Wales, said, "It was a delightful evening. It was just a fabulous occasion. Everyone at these services works so hard and they deserve this accolade greatly. Everyone is looking forward to next year when we are set to open more services."
