The inaugural Scottish Sensory Awards were held on 15th February in Stirling Court Hotel.
The Scottish Sensory Awards were created to recognise the extent of the range of work with hearing impaired, visually impaired and dual sensory impaired people.
The event was a fabulous celebration of good work being acknowledged in the field of sensory impairments.
Adam Ford and The Montgomerie Arms Team won the award for Unsung Heroes. Adam was nominated for learning deafblind manual to communicate with one of his customers and to include him in social activity at the pub.
Deafblind Scotland’s Training Officer Stephen Joyce was a runner up in the Personal and Workforce Development category. He was nominated by his colleagues for going above and beyond in teaching and promoting the work of Deafblind Scotland.
Counterweight with Deafblind Scotland was a runner up in Promoting Partnership Working Across All Services for People With Sensory Loss. This partnership programme allowed the promotion of healthy eating and healthy living to be accessible to people who were dual sensory impaired and had a variety of communication needs. The programme was a fantastic success and all the members involved reported positive changes. Counterweight with Deafblind Scotland was sponsored by Network Rail and we are grateful for all their support on the project.
Congratulations to all winners and runners up.
