R2W Employment Team in ‘good health’ -as they’re nominated for an award!

Oaklea’s CIC Right2Work (R2W) Employment Team have come up trumps again!
Employment Team Tutor Jim Thorburn explains: “Our colleagues in Furness have been nominated for a Healthcare Award in the 2018/19 HPMA( Healthcare People Management Association) in the category of Partnership Working. This is further evidence of the excellent work delivered by the team in supporting Danielle and Rachel in Furness General Hospital.”

Claire Round (pictured left), who acted as their Employment Advisor said: “Rachel and Danielle have been given a fantastic opportunity to pursue their career dreams. R2W have provided 1:1 support to ensure their experience has been meaningful and invaluable. Working together, we have helped to secure a new pathway for young adults with Learning Disabilities to achieve employment and we look forward to working with the NHS in the future.”

Rachel and Danielle were really chuffed too:“I never thought I’d be given an opportunity to do something I love,” said Danielle. “I really enjoy working here and I am learning a lot” added Rachel.

Well done to you all.
