Time and time again we are struck by the commitment and kindness of our staff who go out of their way to help the people we support to achieve their goals.
A lady who stood out to the judges at the Marjorie Newton Wright Awards this year has truly made an impact on the people she supports in Leicester.
Winner – Katie Marshall, Adult Services, Leicester
The judges were really struck by Katie’s commitment to the people she supports. Having been a Support Worker in Leicester for 18 years, Katie has used her skills and warmth to build solid foundations with the people she supports. From helping a lady to paint her nails, to supporting another to maintain family relationships and renegotiating funding; Katie continues to embody MacIntyre’s values.
Notably, Katie’s kindness and dedication hasn't gone unnoticed by her colleagues. We were delighted to hear that she is appreciated by the staff team and her manager.
“The level of trust that the people we support have in Katie is truly inspiring. Her positioning and tone of voice are so natural. She puts everyone at ease.”
Congratulations to Katie and all of our incredible nominees!
