Award success for day centre
THE team at Links Day Centre in Wellingborough, which provides day care for individuals with learning disabilities and additional needs, has received an Initiative of the Year award.
The team received the award from Consensus, which owns the centre along with 90 other specialist support homes and services across England, Wales and Scotland.
Explaining why they chose the Links Day Centre team for the award, James Allen, managing director of Consensus, said: “They impressed the panel through the commitment they have shown in developing partnerships with a significant number of external partners; which were forged to provide enrichment opportunities for the individuals they support. These relationships have allowed many who visit the centre to take part in a range of positive activities, such as work placements in both hospitality and gardening.”
On behalf of the team, Julie Cariga – manager at Links Day Centre – said: “We are totally committed to achieving more positive outcomes for those who need our support. We are driven to provide a better quality of life for the people who use the centre, as well as those who care for them. This award recognises the team’s hard work and dedication in seeking out new opportunities wherever they exist.”
Consensus is a family-owned service provider founded in 2005 by Paul and Helena Jeffery, of the renowned Caring Homes Group.
