Torbay Mencap are delighted (and humbled) to have won the Blue Shield, Gold Team Carers Award at the recent ceremony hosted by Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust. The carers award is for family carers who look beyond their own caring situation to support other family carers. By making things better for people with a learning disability in Torbay, family carers also benefit.
Sir Richard Ibbotson, the Chair of the Trust, presented the award in recognition for Torbay Mencap Committee’s work with Changing Places and the Hospital Passport.
Roger and Janet Brinicombe collected the award on behalf of the committee which was a fitting recognition for their own tireless efforts in providing such an inspiration within Torbay Mencap and beyond.
