Sport For Confidence CIC has been shortlisted for a Public Health Champion Award, part of the annual, national Chief Allied Health Professions Officer (CAHPO) Awards.
The awards programme, now in its seventh year, promotes the adoption and dissemination of good practice whilst celebrating the dedication, innovation, leadership and success of individuals and teams. The awards are open to all members of the allied health professions (AHP) community and nominations are made by peers or individuals themselves.
Speaking about the award, Lyndsey Barrett, Lead Occupational Therapist and Founder of Sport for Confidence, says: “Even just being shortlisted for this prestigious award is an amazing achievement for the team.
“Our application was focused on the work we delivered as part of a ground-breaking Prevention and Enablement model (PEM) that embedded physical activity into a whole system approach to adult health and social care. The project was a test and learn Local Delivery Pilot (LDP) in Essex and delivered by us in partnership with Adult Social Care at Essex County Council, Active Essex.
The project outcomes, independently evaluated by the University of Essex and State of Life, evidenced a £58.72 return in Social Value for every £1 Invested. We are extremely proud to have made the shortlist for this prestigious award. Doing so not only helps us promote the success of PEM, it also recognises and rewards the dedication and hard work of every coach, occupational therapist, participant, volunteer, supporting partner and leisure centre team member involved in the project delivery.”
Award winners will be announced at a virtual awards evening on October 12, 2023. We will keep you posted!
