On the 23rd September The Disabilities Trust celebrated their first Annual Staff Awards ceremony at Rathbones Brothers PLC, in Mayfair, London.

The team at Thomas Edward Mitton House (TEM) were awarded The Overall Team Winner Award for going above and beyond to raise awareness of the effects of brain injury. The award was given in special recognition of TEM House’s outstanding work to raise awareness of our ‘Show Your Brain Some Love’ campaign during brain injury awareness week.

Service Manager Tina Tupper said, “Winning The Overall Team Award was a fabulous surprise. I am so pleased that the TEM House team were recognised for all their hard work and going the extra mile, which they seem to do in one way or another every day. It was a real team effort from everyone at TEM House to increase the awareness of brain injuries through outreach activities to local school children. It was also really great to be able to include our service user, Tom, who gave an amazing and inspirational talk to the children about his story.”
