In each of our provisions across the country, dedicated and hardworking members of staff continuously strive to create a supportive, safe and enjoyable environment for our young people to learn in and re-imagine their potential. We were therefore delighted when Debra Dawson, the Registered Manager at Brantwood Specialist School in Sheffield was announced as the winner of The Care Home Registered Manager category at the Great Yorkshire & Humber Care Awards at a ceremony at The National Railway Museum in York.

Debra’s passion and dedication to the children in her service shone through. Her heartfelt emotion about how her and her service improved children’s lives was inspirational. She should be very proud of her achievements and is a well deserved winner of this award.
