At Quarriers, we are really proud of our achievements, and we are delighted that several people we support and services have been recognised at local and national awards during the past year.
Congratulations to Lewis Drummond, who is supported by Quarriers East Ayrshire Supported Living Service, for winning the Scottish Learning Disability Award for Creative Talent.
Lewis taught himself to read and compose classical music when he was just 15 years old, and has gone on to have his work performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and even conducted by legendary composer Sir James MacMillan.
Senior Family Support Worker Murray Alexander from Quarriers Family Support Service in Dumfries was also highly commended at the awards. He was cheered on by family, colleagues and people we support.
The William Quarrier Scottish Epilepsy Centre was a finalist in the Innovation or Product category at the 2018 Patient Safety Awards. The centre was recognised for its innovative seizure risk assessment scale.
Quarriers Let’s Talk Service, which promotes mental health awareness in primary schools, reached the final of the Scottish Charity Awards in the Pioneering Project category and was shortlisted in the Children’s Services category at the 2018 Laing Buisson Awards.
Quarriers Enhanced Clinical Care Service was shortlisted in the Health and Social Care Integration category at The Herald Society Awards.
Quarriers was also a finalist in the Annual Review category at the 2018 Third Sector Awards.
“We’re just so incredibly proud of Lewis.”
