This event took place on Friday 28th June, where we invited a range of partners, clients, employers and stakeholders to participate.
The format of the day was to celebrate the success of how ‘we’ at Routes to Work coupled with North Lanarkshire Working, close the gaps by supporting the residents and businesses of North Lanarkshire.
The team who consisted of Julie Davidson, Susan Young, Sharlene McVey, Roseanne Lynch, Steven Smith, Danielle Boyle, Claire McKenna, Ann Kerr, Anne Leadbetter, Maureen McCarthy, David McCaig and Cara Platt worked hard to organise what was a very successful event.
The finale of the event was an award ceremony for our nominated categories
We had a number of nominations from staff who wished to recognise their internal and external partners and colleagues. The assessment panel had a very difficult job as all the nominations were inspiring and a pleasure to read. We did however make our decisions and have highlighted the winners below.
Employee of the Year Award to Julie-Anne Murphy who works in the Airdrie office, for exceptional commitment in working to close the gap, in line with Routes to Work's visions and values
Partner of the Year Awards to the Simon Community and Barnardos, for collaborative work with Routes to Work on the Access to Opportunities Project
