We are thrilled to announce that Leeds Autism Services has been selected as winners of the Putting People First award at the Great British Care Awards 2023 regional finals (Yorkshire & Humber).

The Putting People First Award seeks to recognise a team who have embraced the 'Putting People First' personalisation agenda and can demonstrate an innovative approach to empowering people to have more control over the support they need in their lives.

Here's what the judges had to say:

"Leeds Autism Service is truly exceptional, working across two day centres, offering outreach support and an independent supported living service, to support staff, services users and families to make informed decisions about their lives.

They ensure there are regular reviews with families and service users so they get more say in their support and ensuring their needs are met how they want them to be met. A truly good example of collaborative working and putting people first. "

The Yorkshire and Humber regional finals was a glitzy event taking place at Royal Armouries museum in Leeds on Thursday, 2nd November 2023.

We always knew we had an award winning team and this is testament to the hard work and dedication shown by our team members, which we are extremely proud. 

We are Finalists at the Great British Care Awards 2023 National Finals in Birmingham next year!
