The Eleri Ebenezer Special Recognition Award

Aisling Duffy congratulated Jo Watkins, the winner of the Eleri Ebenezer Special Recognition Award.

The Michael Rosen Award

The Michael Rosen Award is the ultimate accolade in our annual awards ceremony. It is awarded to the person or team who the judging panel feels has truly gone above and beyond and best represents what makes Certitude such a great organisation.

Sheila Rosen announced that the Orchards Team is our 2021 Michael Rosen Award winner!

Presenting the award, Sheila said:

“The winner of this year’s Michael Rosen Award is a team who have only known what it is like to support people during a pandemic. They have learnt how to work together to provide the best possible support to people in the most challenging of circumstances.

And they have done a fantastic job! The Orchards team provide short term support to people leaving hospital and they have needed to be responsive, pro-active and results focused. Their mission to support people over a matter of weeks to continue their mental health recovery and feel ready for the next stage of their lives. Their success in doing so has been recognised by the commissioning of a further two services.”

Well done to all the nominees, runners up and winners, and thank you to Sheila Rosen and family, without whose support our awards would not be possible.
