A Voyage Care specialist day centre in Wakefield made it through to the final stages of the National Learning Disabilities and Autism Awards.
Barnsley Road Outreach and Community Services (BROCS) was a finalist in the Great Autism Practice Category at the awards, held on 13th July.
The awards celebrate excellence in the support for people with learning disabilities and aim to pay tribute to those individuals or organisations who excel in providing quality care.
BROCS Service Manager Gail Withington said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be recognised for our work supporting people with autism. As a service we uphold the highest standard to ensure we meet each individual need. We are committed to professionalism and best practice is embraced by every staff member. ”
Voyage Care Operations Manager Ben Guy said he was very proud of the centre.
He said: “BROCS has come a long way in the last couple of years and it is an absolute pleasure to see it develop into the high functioning and extremely successful service it is today. What BROCS offers is so far removed from what is normally expected from a day centre.
“We offer highly personalised support, led by an amazing manager with a great, motivated team. It is a pleasure to have BROCS as part of my portfolio.”
