A Ren­frew dis­abil­ity sup­port ser­vice has swept the boards at an NHS awards cer­e­mony.

The Gate­way In­ten­sive Sup­port Ser­vice scooped the lo­cal over­all prize at this year’s NHS Greater Glas­gow and Clyde Chair­man’s Awards.

Gate­way is a ser­vice that of­fers a ther­a­peu­tic en­vi­ron­ment for in­di­vid­u­als with autism and com­plex learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties.

It works with a va­ri­ety of com­mu­ni­ty­based in­clu­sive projects that are suit­able for the needs of ser­vice users, en­abling the team to teach new skills ,such as wood­work, sew­ing and mu­sic.

The project works to pro­mote greater in­de­pen­dence and life skills for each in­di­vid­ual in a safe and ther­a­peu­tic en­vi­ron­ment that sup­ports learn­ing and re­duces anx­i­ety.

They also iden­tify and set clear aims and pos­i­tive out­comes for each in­di­vid­ual by work­ing in part­ner­ship with ser­vice users, car­ers and other agen­cies.

NHS Greater Glas­gow and Clyde chair­man John Brown said:“2018 had been a tremen­dous year of cel­e­bra­tion mark­ing the 70th an­niver­sary of the NHS.

“Once again this year we were over­whelmed by the num­ber and qual­ity of the en­tries across the range of cat­e­gories and ex­am­ples of our staff go­ing above and be­yond for pa­tients and other col­leagues.

“Th­ese awards are about us show­cas­ing the true qual­ity of our work­force.”
