The Hamlet was one of three organisations shortlisted for the 2019 Norfolk Care Award in the Promoting Dignity and Respect in Everyday Life category and achieved 'Highly Commended' at the awards ceremony.
The Hamlet believes that everyone is unique and deserves to be valued for who they are. This means being given the chance to explore choice, communicate, unlock potential and take new opportunities.
Children's Service Manager Emily Lown, said: "I felt so thrilled that we were finalists and highly commended in this category. At The Hamlet we pride ourselves in valuing each and every child, student and member for what they bring to our charity and model the uttermost respect and dignity for the care we provide. It was fantastic that this award embraced The Hamlet as a whole and not just one particular service. It also felt very special to be in a room full of other like minded organisations on the night of the awards all striving to achieve the very best for people living in Norfolk."
Chief Executive Pauline Morgan, who also attended the award ceremony commented: "It was wonderful to be part of such a prestigious event and to be both representing learning disabilities and the wonderful families we support. It is a real credit to the staff at The Hamlet who work so hard to ensure our children and adults are given the very best care that they so deserve."
