Pembrokeshire County Council was shortlisted for the Local Government Chronical Awards

Pembrokeshire County Council was shortlisted for the Local Government Chronical Awards in the Diversity and Inclusion category, for its supported employment programme. Workways+ Pembrokeshire is part of this partnership which includes Norman Industries and employability projects under Employability Pembrokeshire. The LGC awards are a national set of awards that every public sector organisation in the UK can enter. Karen Davies (Project Manager), Natalie Morgan (Performance & Quality Supervisor), and Rachel Bailey (past Workways+ participant, now Learning Disability Champion for Employment), attended the awards in London on 4 November. To be shortlisted was an incredible achievement. We didn’t win unfortunately– that went to a big infrastructure project in London who worked with its suppliers to increase diversity across their supply chain.

This is what they said about our entry:

“Breaking societal barriers – excellent demonstration of how to put practice into a social model for disability. Breaking barriers showed leadership, not just  for Pembrokeshire but on a wider society level.”

 We want to say a massive thank you everyone who is involved in our programme.
