Registered Manager shortlisted for a National Children and Young People Award

The National Children and Young People Awards acknowledge and celebrate excellence in the outstanding care for children, young people and families and pay tribute to those individuals who excel in providing high quality care and support.

We are proud to announce that Chris Kirkbride at Underley Garden has been shortlisted for the Registered Manager and Education Award!

Nominated by Ann, Principal at Underley Garden, she said that this was for “his relentless focus on providing an outstanding quality of care for our very special young people, but also for the work he has done to ensure our staff have the support and guidance they need to continue the work that Underley is proud of. He also always does it with his own quirky sense of humour which ensures he and we all remain grounded when times are a little challenging.”

The finalists will be announced at a Covid safe awards ceremony, hosted at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre as soon as Government restrictions are lifted.
