Calan DVS attended the annual Cymorth Cymru Promoting Independence Awards 2013, at the Radisson Blu hotel in Cardiff on Friday 6th December. The awards are a partnership event between Cymorth Cymru and Welsh Local Authorities, with an aim to raise the profile of housing-related support and to showcase the work that is being done within the sector to help vulnerable members of society.
We were delighted to be shortlisted in all our categories; Working in Partnership, Service User Achievement and Inspirational Colleague.
Natalie Hancock, Team Leader Refuge Services received a “Highly Commended” Certificate for her nomination as Inspirational Colleague whilst Hayley Williams received acknowledgement and was highly commended by judges in the “Service User Achievement” category.
Hayley Williams was also nominated by Calan DVS for Local Hero, Llanelli, in The Wave and Swansea Sound Local Hero Awards 2013. The award ceremony took place on Thursday 5th December with Hayley successfully collecting the Local Hero Award in recognition of her journey to rebuild her life after leaving an abusive relationship.
Congratulations to all.
