We’re delighted to announce that our very own trustee Craig Kennady is the winner of the Dimensions UK Learning Disabilities and Autism Leaders List 2019 for Work and Education.
Craig has been a trustee since the formation of Esteem and is a great advocate for people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
He is a member to two Parliamentary Commissions: the Westminster commission on Autism and the Westminster AchieveAbility Commission on Dyslexia – Neurodiversity. Craig’s work on these Commissions has been extensive, and he was a key player in the “Spectrum of Obstacles” report, which urged politicians to make autism training for health professionals mandatory.
This recommendation has recently been accepted, and will make a real difference to the health outcomes for people with autism – a huge achievement!
Many congratulations to Craig on his accomplishment; we're very proud too have him on our Trust Board.
