They promote dignity, respect and well-being while working extremely closely with users and their families.

The two schemes that won were from Ashley Drive and Cressex Road.

Ashley Drive is a purpose-built home with staff providing care and support for six adults with learning and physical disabilities. 

Cressex Road also provide dedicated support for individuals with complex needs.

The staff at Ashley Drive helped Janice Hurrell's daughter to eat proper meals again rather than through a tube. She said:

"At one stage my daughter was 5.5 stone and now she's 9 stone. It's a delight to see her eating again.I think her quality of life is better now and she's got a more normal life. People with Rhett's Syndrome and epilepsy don't normally go from PEG feeding back to solid food.We're defying the prognosis!"
