We’re delighted to be shortlisted for both the Independent Agency Awards and the National Learning Disabilities and Autism Awards, which both have their awards ceremony this week.
Our recruitment campaign “London is Calling” is shortlisted in both the Best ‘Not for profit’ Campaign, and the Freedom Award categories. Our ground-breaking TV advert challenges outdated stereotypes and shows working in social care for what it is – fun, skilled and hugely rewarding. Our collaboration, with JAA creative agency and Network, led to a unique approach that received huge positive feedback from London’s support worker community as well as directly leading to increased applications for job vacancies at Certitude.
Winners for both categories will be announced on the evening of 5 July.
To add to the excitement, Emma Lee-Tobin, one of our Area Managers, has been nominated for the Manager Award Category at The National Learning Disabilities and Autism Awards. The awards will take place on Friday and celebrate excellence in the support for people with learning disabilities.
“The award will celebrate a manager who has demonstrated a high level of expertise, exceptional skills in leadership and management, great support for colleagues and a positive commitment to person centred support. A manager who shows vision in developing high quality services and supporting staff to meet the ever-changing needs of the people they support”.

Congratulations to all of the nominees, especially Emma who felt honoured to have been nominated, adding
“I love my job and Certitude has given me such great opportunities since I started. I understand the challenges the teams face every day but seeing the difference we can make, makes my job even more special.”
Winners will be announced on the evening of 8 July.
