The Leader Across Boundaries Award 

SPICE won the ‘Leader Across Boundaries’ award for the important work they do in giving people with learning disabilities a voice. They have worked hard to help people to have a better awareness of people with disabilities and improve services and we are all very proud of them for winning this award and getting the recognition for the fantastic work they do.

The Awards

The Greater Manchester Health and Care Champion Awards are the first region-wide awards to recognise members of Greater Manchester's paid and unpaid workforce who regularly go above and beyond to improve the health and wellbeing of the people of Greater Manchester.

The award ceremony was opened by the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham and co-presented by Andrew Foster (Chief Executive of Wrightington, Wigan & Leigh NHS) and Anabelle Tiffin (North West Tonight Presenter). Andy Burnham said: “I am extremely proud to support these awards… It is really important that we make the most of this opportunity to celebrate our unsung heroes.”

The awards recognise the contribution of our health and care champions; from doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, social workers and pharmacists, to care workers, unpaid carers, apprentices and volunteers, for really making a difference in our communities.

The awards are organised by Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, the body overseeing devolution of the area’s health and social care budget, with support from the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham.
