Pinpoint Parent Awards 2017

This year's Parent Awards were presented by Gethyn Williams, Director of Development & Engagement at national charity Contact A Family, which supports families with disabled children.

Our awards are a "thank you" to groups and individuals who have got involved in Pinpoint's work and support parent carers across Cambridgeshire.

 

              

  • Pinpoint Parent Group Award - March Pegs   Presented for outstanding work in the community helping parent carers around March and the Fenland area. They also run Saturday sessions for families. Said Sharon Wing, who accepted the award: " I've had a lovely day and have been so overwhelmed by the recognition for our wonderful little group.  On behalf of myself and the Pegs team I would like to say a huge thank you to all the families that support us and also to Burrowmoor School for being kind enough to allow us the use of their building and facilities. And of course a huge thank you to Pinpoint for recognising the group and the hard work myself and the volunteers put into making the monthly sessions fun and enjoyable for all who attend."

 

 

  • Pinpoint Parent Support Award - Amy Clarke    Amy is the co-ordinator for the Ramsey Branch of Little Miracles and goes above and beyond to support the parents who attend the group.  The call to the stage to receive the award from Gethyn was a total surprise for Amy -- and hugely deserved.  She said afterwards: " I was totally overwhelmed by today. I am just a mum who has two children with additional needs. I love to help others in the same situation as me. A massive thank you for the recognition it really means a great deal to me."

 

 

  • Pinpoint Parent Participation Awards - Clare Lindsay and Liz Day  Clare is an active volunteer on mental health transformation focus groups and on Pinpoint's ADHD/ASD support groups.  She joined Pinpoint to eppear on Cambridge TV last year to talk about the importance of peer to peer support for parents of children with additional needs. Liz is another super-active volunteer on our mental health transformation focus groups ADHD / ASD support groups. She also sits on our Partners in Commissioning Group and attends other workshops  to represent parents.  Liz is excellent at highlighting parent issues and researching them. she also supports parents through social media and is committed to improving SEND services for families.
