Michelle Kenny & Alison Senior are today’s nominees!
The Anna Alderson Award was instigated in 2016 in memory of our former Chairperson Anna, and the example she set in demonstrating the values that are important to Rise.
Today’s nominees are:
Michelle Kenny and Alison Senior
Senior Service Coordinators- Mental Health
“Both Michelle and Alison have supported and lead their respective teams through times of change due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The landscape in which the support services were provided would rapidly change in a lockdown environment- both Alison and Michelle responded swiftly to the needs of both the staff and the clients to ensure that there was minimal impact to the clients we supported during a lockdown situation.
Both Alison and Michelle supported their teams to be innovative and creative in continuing to deliver supports- this meant that the clients continued to receive support albeit in a new and innovative way.
Staff focused on meeting the physical aspects of supports by going on walks and treasure hunts also there a little bit of gardening going on too."
