Ruth is shortlisted for national award

Ruth received some flowers to celebrate her nomination.

We are absolutely delighted that Ruth, our Tenant Design Advisor, is a finalist in the National Learning Disability and Autism Awards.

Ruth has been shortlisted for the People’s Award, which is for those who offer “exceptional encouragement and support for individuals with learning disabilities and or autism in providing support services and or personal development and inclusion”. She is a passionate advocate for people with learning disabilities living independently and uses her own experience of moving from a hospital environment – something she describes as “life-changing” – to educate others. She has been a valuable part of the Affinity Trust team that delivered our development at Copton Ash, improving the design for the residents and discussing the plans with architects.

As a result of her role as a Design Advisor and advocate, Ruth has also taken up public speaking, appearing on radio and television.

The winner will be announced at a special ceremony in July – everyone at Affinity Trust is keeping their fingers crossed for her.

Ruth sees Copton Ash for the first time (Vimeo).
